Caring for your Tree

Caring for your real tree is easy...the most important thing to remember is that real trees need water - just like a fresh bouquet of flowers.  If you are not ready to decorate it, keep the tree outdoors, protected from the wind and sun until you are ready to bring the tree into your home.

Trees are very thirsty.  They will drink between two pints and one gallon of water per day.  Use a water-bearing stand with a water capacity of one gallon or more ifwreathco possible.  Check the stand daily and supply fresh water as needed.

And remember, another approach is to have a potted tree.  This can be bought from us year-round and then decorated or transplanted after the holidays.  Whether you want one or ten, Moore Tree Farm is the place to go!
