How toHow To Pick The Perfect Christmas Tree
9 steps
Walk around and check out the variety of trees that are available.
1
Balsam Fir- Dark green, fragrant, flexible branches (not great for heavy ornaments).
2
Fraser Fir- Silvery green, long lasting, soft to the touch, firm branches (holds heavier ornaments).
3
Pay attention to the color of the needles. Fresh trees look shiny and vibrant-not yellow or brown.
4
Tap on the ground to help settle the branches. Give it a spin and see how it looks on all sides.
5
Check for freshness. Move on if a lot of needles fall or pull off the tree.
6
Fresh tree branches feel soft, not brittle and should bend, not break.
7
Look between the branches for any insects or unwanted critters.
8
Once you found a fresh tree, step back and take one final look before purchasing.
