Keep your tree hydrated
The most important thing to remember is to keep your tree hydrated! If you give your tree every opportunity possible to take up and retain water, it will stay green and retain its needles longer.
After you select your tree
We will slice a small round from the tree’s stump. This fresh cut allows your tree to take up water. Be sure to put your tree in water within an hour—the faster the better. Otherwise, the tree’s natural reaction will be to seal off the wound with a sappy resin, which will inhibit it from absorbing water.

Garland & Wreath Care
These beautiful and fragrant decorations can be sensitive to the same winter conditions that tend to dry out our own skin and chap our cheeks. Some things that can dry out your greens can be; direct sunlight, heaters, fire places, heat vents, cold air returns, extreme cold, wind, decorative lights or candles.
A simple way to keep things supple is to mist your wreaths and garland with water every often.
