Getting the wrong one can cause a great Deal of irritation. One solution is an artificial tree. If your tastes run in the direction of a real tree perhaps the following tips will help. Select a tree that is As freshly Cut As possible. One Way to do this is to choose one from a tree farm where your tree can be Cut while you watch. If this Isnit possible try to pick the freshest one on the lot. Some Are Cut later than others. Did you know its Best to choose a fertilized tree one that has been fertilized in the Spring with additional nitrogen will hold its Needles up to twice As Long As one which was not fertilized. For easier selection look for Trees on stands. The branches will be in the Normal position rather than bunched you can also walk All around the tree and see if it looks As Good from the other sides. This is one time when it is All right to sniff. Sniff the Needles to be sure the tree gives off the Aroma of Pine. Watch for color. Many Trees Are artificially coloured. If not the tree May seem Gray and some of the ends of the Needles Brown. This indicates the tree is not fresh. Stroke the Needles to see if they come off. Do this gently but if the tree is fresh the Needles should not drop off. If there Are Many Needles on the ground around the tree look for another one. After you bring the tree Home it might be Wise to put it in a preservative. The sooner the tree is Given moisture after it is Cut the better. A simple homemade preservative can be made from Light Corn syrup chlorinated household bleach and commercial tree preservative mixed with hot water. Before you put the tree in a stand with preservative Cut a Diagonal Cut with a saw at the base of the trunk at least one Inch above the original Cut. This helps the tree to absorb moisture. Of course if you Are not going to put the tree up immediately leave it outside. When the tree is indoors Check the liquid in the stand daily and add More As needed. Keep the tree away from the fireplace hot air registers and sunny windows. Have the room As moist As possible. For added safety use Only fireproof ornaments and approved electrical Light sets that Are in Good condition. Discard those that Are worn or frayed or repair them before using on the tree if you Are using a spotlight keep it Well away from the tree. a a we heard of a Little boy a few years ago who loved school so much in the first Grade he did no to want to stay Home for Christmas vacation this boy is grown up and married now and the teacher is retired.
