  • Real Christmas Tree Question?

    Are you supposed to water a real Christmas tree? I've never had one before.

    YES!!! If you don't keep it watered it will dry out and then you will have a potential fire hazard. Don't let Jill drink the water! This from someone who had real trees, but now can't because of the allergies.

          It should like a bowl type stand. If it is then fill it up just before it reaches the top of the inside. No, you're not retarded.

              a couple tips: when you get the tree, cut an inch or so off the end of the trunk (the part that is in the water) so there is a fresh surface to draw up water. also, when you water it, put a little bit of sprite or 7-up in the water- trees like the sugar!

              check the water every day- no fires!

                  real xmas trees cut from the trunk drink a lot more water. plan on filling a couple of times a day. trees off a lot that have been cut probably a couple weeks old at least. they need water daily to every other day hth

                    Christmas trees...Bah!!! Humbug!!! (a pagan activity adopted by christians; albeit, part of my germanic heritage) The only way to reduce the potential fire hazzard is to go to your local nursery, and get a potted tree. The beauty of them is that you can plant it in your yard after Christmas. I had a neighbor back in Colorado that did this for eight or nine years; after that, he had enough of them in his yard, and they were big enough that he could just go out and "top" one of them each year for his tree for the inside of the house (topping a different tree each year). He hasn't bought a tree for Christmas in more than twenty years...

                      When you first get the tree home it's gonna drink a lot of water (several quarts-gallon). A good rule is to check it in the morning and again in the evening, making sure it's full both times. The longer your lights are on the more it will dry out the tree the more water it will need. I can honestly say I've never had an artificial tree. I'm so cool.

                        Word of warning about the live trees...our neighbors where I grew up did the same thing. One of the Monterey Pines got to be a very big tree...then it crashed down on another neighbor's house during an El Nino storm. Demolished the roof a couple of days before Christmas.

                        I don't have a tree. No room and the young cat would knock it over anyway.

                            I'm glad you made that point! All the better we should wipe the globe clean of trees! Heaven forbid one of them should fall down during a storm or other act of nature, and damage something! We could saw them all up and build something to give us shade in the summer too. I'm also sure that some scientist with a 200 pound head can find a way to make oxygen for us to breath once all of those dangerous, tall trees are gone...

                              lol...youre absolutely terrible. I think some big pine trees in a small yard was the point here...not that all trees are terrible.

                              Im still laughing ...
