NOBLE FIR TREE

Symmetrical. Bluish-green needles appear silver, form 4 sides around branch. Popular Christmas tree because of beauty, stiff branches, and long keepability. Also great for making wreaths, door swags, and garland. Will last longer than most trees, with proper tree care.

TREE CARE

Make a fresh cut to remove ¼” to 1” thick disk of wood from base of trunk just before placing in stand, to maximize tree life and health.  Avoid placing the tree near any source of direct heat.  Water often: water level should not drop below the tree cut (bottom).  Do not add preservatives to the water, fresh water will maintain your tree best.

TIPS ON PICKING A CHRISTMAS TREE

Choose a tree at least 1 foot shorter than your ceiling height.
Check width of bottom branches, some trees are wider than others.
Keep in mind the weight of your ornaments, check branch sturdiness if necessary.
