Tree Care & Recycling

Holiday trees bring new life to our environment. During its growing years your tree has cleansed the air, provided oxygen, secured the soil against erosion, made a home for wildlife, and beautified the land.

For every tree sold, three seedlings are planted in its place.

Tree Care

For maximum beauty and safety use a tree stand that holds one gallon of water. Refill daily. A fresh tree containing adequate moisture will NOT support a flame.

Before placing your tree in the stand, cut at least 1/4 inch off the base to remove sap and allow absorption of water. Do not allow water level to drop below the trunk bottom or a new sap plug will form.

Place tree away from fireplaces, radiators, and other heat sources that could dry the tree.
