HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR REAL CHRISTMAS TREE

We believe Christmas just isn’t Christmas without a real Christmas tree to enhance the Christmas ambiance in a home, with its fresh pine fragrance.

We currently sell all of our trees freshly cut and with the correct (recommended) care, they will live approximately 3-4 weeks – however our recommendation is two weeks before Christmas. All of our trees come tagged with professionally printed instructions on how to care for your tree, making it easy for you to ensure your tree lasts throughout the Festive Season!

The following steps will help you keep one of our real Christmas trees
looking fresh throughout the Christmas season

TRAVEL

When getting your tree from the farm or a stockist, avoid direct sunlight during transport. Place the netted tree in your car’s back or cover with a tarp on a trailer/ute to prevent sun and heat damage.

REFRESH

Refresh the tree by making a straight cut across the base, taking 2cm off the stump before you place it into a stand with water. This simple measure will better enable your real Christmas tree to absorb sufficient water to maintain its freshness.

STAND

Use our Cinco Christmas tree stand for your real tree. It holds 4-12 liters of water. You should expect the tree to take up additional water each day for at least the first week. Water the new tree until water uptake stops.

STORAGE

If you do not wish to put your tree up immediately, store it in a cool place out of wind and sun in a bucket of water.

WATER

Check the water level daily. If the water drops below the trunk, the trunk may seal itself and not be able to absorb water and the stump will need to be cut again. Use regular water to keep your real Christmas tree fresh.

PLACEMENT

Place the tree away from direct sunlight, windows, air-conditioners and other heat sources as they will dry out your tree prematurely.

LIFE SPAN

If properly cared for (using the first five steps) your real Christmas tree should last at least 3-4 weeks before drying out.

NON- REFUNDABLE

We can’t refund or replace trees if care isn’t followed, affecting its 3-4 week lifespan. We aim for a vibrant tree on Christmas Day; cutting later helps appearance.
