Why not learn more about Stands?
Before you begin shopping for a perfect tree, you should figure out where you’ll place it in your house. After choosing the spot, be sure to measure the ceiling height as well as the width of your space. Also, you have to take measurements of the front door’s width as well as all narrow spaces your tree will go through before it’s placed in the right spot. Record these measurements. Take your tape measure when you go shopping. It’ll help you measure the trees you’re considering.
The Beginners Guide To Trees (Getting Started 101)
How your Christmas tree will stand up There are many different Christmas tree stands to choose from, but most people like to improvise a stand out of a pot or heavy bucket to support the tree. The taller your Christmas tree, the bigger its diameter will be, so your stand has to be stronger. When choosing a stand, get one with a little water to keep the tree looking fresh throughout Christmas. Place a waterproof material, for example plastic, where you tree will stand to protect the carpet or avoid watermarks on the floor. If your Christmas tree is really huge, or you’re afraid it will flip over, attach a large, flat plywood to its stand to broaden the base of your tree, make it more stable as well as protect the floor. Where should you place your tree? Where your Christmas tree is placed is very important as certain areas of your home may pose a fire risk. Make sure to avoid areas like near fireplaces, in direct sunlight, as well as near heaters. Picking the best real Christmas tree Your tree should have enough room between branches where decorations can be placed. The branches should also be sturdy enough to hold heavier decorations. Your Christmas tree will look much better if decorations are hanging straight. To test your tree, hang your ornaments on several branches of the tree to see if there’s space for the ornaments to hang straight. To know if your Christmas tree is fresh, check the needles to see if they’re green, shiny and fresh, instead of brown or dry. Pull on some branches to make sure needles don’t fall off. Once you get home, cut off about 2 centimeters of the trunk at the bottom so the tree starts to absorb water immediately. The tree should stand completely vertical.
