Preparing a Christmas tree, decorating it with handmade or purchased jewelry, and then enjoying looking at it is a big part of the charm of Christmas and the Christian New Year.
Today, in addition to natural pine trees, which are available in various sizes and shapes from a few weeks before Christmas, there are also various artificial trees on the market. Although buying an artificial Nobel tree can be both beneficial to nature and more economical due to its durability, many families still prefer a real Nobel tree’s freshness. They are reluctant to replace it with artificial shrubs. We recommend buying artificial pine trees to protect natural resources, but if you are planning to buy a natural tree, following some tips can help your Nobel tree last longer in optimal conditions and maintain its freshness.
Most families are looking to buy a large, well-shaped pine tree. In addition to the appearance of the tree at the time of purchase, how it is maintained after purchase also plays an essential role in maintaining the tree’s freshness and appearance. More than half the weight of the tree you buy is related to the water in it if it has just been cut down. The water that is absorbed from the roots and reaches the trunk, branches, and then the tree’s needle leaves evaporates in the leaves through the small holes in them. If the tree is cut from the roots, The evaporation continues. The evaporates through the leaves, despite the cessation of water absorption. This causes dehydration in the plant. As a result, the plant begins to lose leaves and reduce evaporation levels to minimize evaporation and water loss in the body. That is why your Nobel tree will soon lose its leaves and become naked or ugly.
The best way to prevent this is to place the tree in the water.
To water the tree, immediately after purchasing the tree and moving it home, plant it in a large pot containing sand, keep the pot’s soil continuously moist, or place the tree in a large container holding water. One of the best ways for natural Nobel tree lovers to buy a rooted tree in a pot can be to keep it indoors for Christmas and then move it outdoors again.
Use only clean water to irrigate the tree, and avoid adding commercial or chemical preservatives or sugar, honey, aspirin, or other similar prescriptions.
Keep in mind that the tree may have been cut down days before you purchased it, so try to choose the freshest tree and put it in the water as soon as you get home. The pine tree is not an apartment plant, so delay moving it inside the house and decorating the tree as much as possible, and at this distance, keep the tree in cold weather outside the house. After moving it home, avoid placing the tree near heat sources such as radiators, heaters or fireplaces. Choose a tree with a long base so that you do not have to cut the tree’s lower branches when placing it in the pot or container because this will change the shape of the tree from what you saw and liked at first.
When decorating a tree, before placing electrical wires on the tree, test them and make sure they are healthy.
Also, always turn off all the electric lights used to decorate your Christmas tree and unplug them before going to bed or leaving the house. With proper care of the Christmas tree, you can protect its quality and prolong its life.
