Christmas trees have arrived at Burger Farm! This year we have another great selection of Fraser, Douglas, Canaan, Concolor, Fraser/Balsam mix and the ever so fragrant Noble fir trees. Tree sizes will range from 3ft to 10ft tall but not all varieties will be available in all sizes. Come out early for the best selection and just a reminder that Burger Farm does offer delivery and set up services for an additional fee.
Here are Burger Farms top 5 tips for caring for your fresh cut Christmas tree –
Tip #1 – Buy your tree early for the best selection, but don’t put it up too early in the season as trees could dry out and drop needles after several weeks. We suggest bringing your tree inside no earlier than the day after Thanksgiving. Keep your Christmas tree in a sheltered, unheated area such as a porch or garage to protect it from the wind and sun until you are ready to bring it indoors.
Tip #2 – When you do buy a tree, get a fresh cut on the end of the trunk and then get the tree in water within the next 3 to 4 hours. Trees can absorb as much as a gallon of water or more in the first 24 hours and one or more quarts a day thereafter. Water is important because it prevents the needles from drying and dropping off and the boughs from drooping. .
Tip #3 – Keep the tree watered! Water also keeps the tree fragrant
Tip #4 – When placing your tree in the house, try to keep it away from furnace air registers to help prevent warm dry air blowing on it or close off that register to block air flow
Tip #5 – Add Prolong Tree Preservative to the water to keep the sap running and your tree looking fresher, longer.
