Nothing Says Christmas Like The Cut Norway Spruce Christmas Tree

cut Christmas treeThink of Christmas, think of cut Christmas trees, you are most likely thinking of the Norway Spruce. Most people cannot put the name to it, but that is the traditional Christmas tree. Some people love them, others detest them because of the extra work that cut Christmas trees bring – when it all boils down – that is what Christmas is all about.

The Norway Spruce is popular because of its strong branches. These branches make it easy for anyone, the youngest child included, to decorate the tree without causing too much damage. The biggest downfall, it does drop needles quickly if it gets too warm. Instead of using the traditional Christmas lights, use LED lights. They generate very little heat so they will not harm the tree.

Cut trees come in a range of sizes. The spruce comes in seven different sizes ranging from around the five foot mark to upwards of ten feet. Pick the size that most suits your needs then prepare your decorations. There is nothing like a cut Christmas tree covered in tinsel, lights, baubles and of course, the mandatory star. There is nothing quite like the look on children’s faces when they see the tree in all its glory.

If you really want to bring a little bit of tradition back into your Christmas then consider the cut Norway Spruce Christmas tree.

Caring For Your Live Potted Christmas Tree

With the right care, your live potted Christmas tree may be a one off investment that will serve you well for many years to come. If you neglect your tree – you will be lucky to see it last until Christmas Day.

Caring for that tree is fairly easy and straight forward. There are three areas to cover prior and during Christmas and three areas to cover after Christmas.

Like all living plants, trees require the right light, temperature and water. Christmas trees are generally not indoor plants. However, they are hardy and will comfortably withstand the Christmas period indoors. When you first get your live tree, keep it outside, give it adequate water without drowning it or letting the pot dry out.

Once inside, place your tree where it will not suffer from heat damage. They prefer cooler areas of the house, certainly away from any heat sources.

After Christmas, the three things your tree needs is acclimatization, a bigger home and food. You can acclimatize your tree by placing it in a cool shady area for several weeks. You can then either plant it out into your garden or pot it out to a bigger pot. Do this before spring. Finally, during the growing season, give it some fertilizer – you know, they need feeding just like us.

Look after your live potted Christmas tree and it will serve you well for years to come. The tree itself can grow with your children and become a part of the celebration.
