Choose a Quality Tree
At Watts Christmas Tree Farm, you will find a fantastic selection of premium grade trees to choose from. Visit our Trees page to learn more about the different varieties of trees we carry. After purchasing your tree, one of our friendly staff members will make a clean cut to the base of the tree, drill a hole (if requested and your stand has a stake in it), trim away stray branches and net and load the tree onto your vehicle at no charge.
What Else Do I Need?
If you do not own a fresh cut tree stand, now would be the time to purchase one. Choose a real Christmas tree stand that holds a gallon of water or more. Also, purchase a tree removal bag which will help to protect your floors and make clean up easier at the end of the season. Ideally, you should set up your tree a soon as possible when you get home. If you are waiting, 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. Keep the trunk of the tree immersed in a bucket of water so that sap from the tree does not form over the cut stump and block the trees ability to absorb water. If it does, you’ll need to make a new cut prior to bringing the tree indoors.
Tree Set Up
Clear space in the room where you plan to display your Christmas tree. Spread the tree removal bag on the ground to protect floors and carpets from possible moisture. Then place your fresh cut tree stand on top of the bag. Bring the tree indoors and place it in the stand. Tighten the stands bolts and fill the base with water.
Watering Your Christmas Tree
In order to keep your Christmas tree fresh, it is very important to keep the tree stand filled with water. A seal of dried sap will form over the cut stump in four to six hours if the water drops below the base of the tree, preventing the tree from absorbing water later when the tree stand is refilled. If a seal does form, another fresh cut will need to be made or the tree will begin to wilt and drop its needles. A tree will 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. Water also keeps the tree fragrant.
