Make Life Easier With A Christmas Tree Stand

Christmas tree standI have seen a lot of different Christmas tree stands over the years. A couple of bricks stacked around the base of the tree; a bucket of sand; a tub of dirt; and a cement block with hole drilled through the middle. They are just some of the novel ways that people have used to hold their Christmas tree up. I have also seen a fully decorated tree, complete with lights, leaning against a wall with no support but the wall itself.

Most of these methods have one big problem – they don’t actually look after the tree. The bucket of sand idea isn’t too bad and neither is the tub of dirt. The biggest problem with these ideas is water. You can water the sand, but it has poor water retention abilities. You can water the dirt; at least it holds the water a little better. The end result is that these trees start to lose their needles well before Christmas.

If you really want your tree to last until Christmas, buy a proper Christmas tree stand. They help keep your Christmas tree standing tall whilst keeping the tree well hydrated (if you remember to fill it with water, that is). Christmas tree stands are built specifically for that job. They are so easy to use you will have your Christmas tree up and ready to decorate in no time at all.

How To Use A Christmas Tree Stand

Christmas tree standsChristmas tree stands are a popular method of holding Christmas trees. This popular Cinco Christmas tree stand is one of the best on the market with an excellent tree stability history. We prefer our customers’ used Christmas tree stands since they provide a much better environment than some other methods in use.

Setting up your Christmas tree in a stand is fairly straight forward. Before bringing your tree inside, it helps if you cut a little off the base of the tree. This is similar to cutting a small portion from the base of flower stems. It gives the tree a fresh new surface that will ‘drink’ in the water as it is is required.

Once your tree is ready, place it in the Christmas tree stand and tighten the holding screws. Tighten these a little at a time to ensure the tree is firmly held in the center of the stand. Once the tree is firmly secure, fill the base with water and keep it topped up all the time.

Using a Christmas tree stand allows your tree to drink freely as it needs the water. This will help to keep the tree fresh and reduce the amount of needle drop. Your Christmas tree will then last all the way through to Christmas Day looking and smelling as fresh as the day it arrived.

Look After Your Christmas Tree With A Decorative Stand

Christmas tree standOur Christmas trees are real Christmas trees that have been cut fresh from the plantation ready for delivery to your home. They are no different to a bunch of flowers that you have cut in the garden or bought home with you.

Cut flowers need a vase to hold them and plenty of fresh water to keep them hydrated. The stand pictured is about 35cms (14ins) in height and can support a tree up to 225cms (7 ft5ins) in height.

Christmas trees would undoubtedly look good in a vase – if you could get one big enough to hold it, that is. What is more practical is a purpose built Christmas tree stand. These stands work in a similar fashion to a vase; they hold the tree in place and water it at the same time.

If you take a closer look at the picture you will see that the cup that holds the trunk is quite large and quite deep. After securing the tree, fill this cup with water. Each day,ch add a little more as the water level falls.

Decorative cast iron Christmas tree stands add to the overall look and appeal of the tree. They are certainly better looking than the bucket of sand that some people use.  Look after your Christmas tree with a stand that has been crafted to exactly that .
