Start with a stable tree stand that will hold your tree without tipping and provide enough water ( 1 quart/1 liter of water per inch of stem diameter )
Clear a space large enough to handle the diameter of your tree and stay away from heat sources.
All our trees get a fresh cut, regardless if ordered with or without treestand, before being dispatched for delivery.
For trees that have been cut longer than 4 hours, make a fresh cut of about a ½ inch disk from the base of the trunk for water uptake.
Secure the tree in the stand making sure it is straight and add water.
Water temperature doesn’t matter and no additives are needed.
The tree will REQUIRE A LOT OF WATER INITIALLY, so make sure there is plenty of water for uptake
