Picking a Tree

Things to Consider 

  • Tree Location...
    • What's my ceiling height?...allow room for your tree topper
    • Will the tree be seen from all sides?...look for a symmetrical tree
    • Will the tree be in a corner?...a less than perfect tree will work
  • Tree Stand...
    • How large is the opening?...will a girthy trunk fit?
    • Do I have a special stand that requires the trunk to be drilled?
  • Ornaments...
    • Do I have large, long, heavy ornaments?...look for Canaan or Fraser Fir which have open spacing that allows long ornaments to "hang" rather than "lay" on the tree and have sturdy branches for heavy decorations.


  • Bag...install a tree bag before setting up your tree.
  • Fragrance keep that fresh scent, snip a few tips from inner branches every few days.
  • Simple but Elegant...just starting out? No ornaments? Use white lights, tie a small ribbon bow and hang it on the branch with an ornament hook then add a big bow at the top.
