5 Easy Tree Care Tips From Grandpa Alpaugh

Want your Christmas tree to stay fresh all through the holidays?

Tree Care Expert Grandpa Alpaugh from Evergreen Valley Christmas Tree FarmHere are a few Tree Care Tips from Grandpa Alpaugh here at Evergreen Valley Christmas Tree Farm.

1. Be sure not to let your tree freeze after cutting!  Temperatures below 32 degrees can damage the tree, so be sure to put your Christmas tree up as soon as  possible & store out of the cold until you can.

2. Cut a 1/4″ to 1/2″ off the trunk to expose fresh wood just prior to placing your tree in the stand.  Trees need to absorb  lots of water  & create a larger surface area for the tree to drink!

3. Water your tree at least once a day! You’d be surprised that lots of people skip this obvious step, but it’s easy to do!

4. Do not add anything to the water – just clean lukewarm water is best! Yep- we have that direct from our forestry expert, Grandpa Alpaugh!

5. Keep you Christmas tree from drying out so keep it away from heat sources – fireplaces, radiators, heaters & direct sunlight!

There you have it!  5 easy tree care tips from our resident forestry expert, Grandpa Alpaugh!  Enjoy!

How To Make A Christmas Tradition

Everyone has their own Christmas traditions – seasonal rituals that very often begin with picking the perfect Christmas tree.

And when you think about it, Christmas tree shopping is really about more than the tree itself.

It’s about taking time to be together, driving out to our  farm.

It’s about the excitement and anticipation of finding the perfect tree.

It’s about breathing in crisp clean air, scented with fresh pine.

It’ about making friends with strangers on the wagon rides.

It’s about watching children run freely through the fields, giggling as they go!

And when you get home and decorate the tree, you’ll remember your time here at the farm.

The when you sit back, presents all wrapped under the tree, you’ll breathe in the scent of fresh pine and remember the farm.

You’ll probably take pictures of your Christmas tree, and share them with friend sand family, and remember where you got the tree.

It’s more than memories, though.  It’s the feeling you get when you think about where and how you found your Christmas tree.

That’s why people come back to the farm, year after year – and make getting a Christmas tree here an important part of their Christmas tradition.

Here’s a photo of from our FaceBook friend & customer, Marisa – who brought her son to pick out his very first Christmas tree!

So thanks, Christmas tree lovers!  We’re so happy you chose Evergreen Valley Christmas Tree Farm!
