How to Pick the Perfect Tree

At Down to Earth, all the trees are untied and standing so that you can view the tree you are going to buy. Our experts have compiled a list of things to consider to help you pick out the perfect tree:

  1. Measure the height of your ceiling
  2. Measure the width of the space in which you are going to put up the tree
  3. Make certain to open the tree before you buy it. You often cannot tell how the tree will look until it is untied.
  4. This will enable you to tell whether the tree is even all around, symetrical and without holes.
  5. Feel the needles to see if they are flexible. This will tell you if the tree is fresh.
  6. You can pull gently on the end of a branch. If the tree is fresh the needles will not fall off in your hands.
  7. At down to earth we put a fresh cut on the tree before we load it on your car. This will enable your tree to draw water. It is very important that this cut be made.
  8. When you get your tree home immediately place it in a bucket of water or put it in its’ stand with a plentiful amount of water.
  9. Keep adding water as necessary to keep your tree from drying out.
  10. Place your tree in a cool spot away from heat.
  11. Decorate as you wish and enjoy.
  12. Every tree purchased from Down to Earth is guaranteed not to drop its’ needles before Christmas. If it should, we will replace the tree immediately.

We wish you a very merry Christmas and a happy and healthy new year.
