Care of the tree

It is part of the life cycle of the conifer tree that it sheds needles and they will accelerate that shedding particularly if they dry out. Some trees do so more quickly than others. The best way to ensure satisfaction is to care for the tree while it is in your home. Your real Christmas tree should be treated like any plant being brought into a warm, dry atmosphere.


Deliver me a Christmas tree do not treat their real Christmas trees with fire-retardant. Deliver me a Christmas tree advise all residential and corporate customers to conduct their own full fire risk assessment before ordering a real Christmas tree(s) from Deliver me a Christmas tree. 

Do not place your tree close to a heat source, including a fireplace, candle or heat vent. The heat will dry out the tree, causing it to be more easily ignited by heat, flame or sparks.

Be careful not to drop or flick cigarette ashes near a tree. Do not put your live tree up too early or leave it up for longer than 3 weeks. Always keep the tree stand filled with water.​

When you take delivery of your real Christmas tree it should be kept outside in a cool shaded place, preferably standing in water, until it is required indoors. Before bringing the tree indoors it is an advantage if about half an inch is cut off the butt in order to open up the pores of the tree. Mount it in a water-holding stand and place it away from direct heat. Keep the stand topped up with water; you will be surprised how much it needs.
