Some people might generally opt for fake plastic trees because they think they last longer. Not only are they bad for the environment (when shipped overseas especially), but fresh trees can actually last quite a while. As long as you keep the base filled with fresh water, most Christmas trees should last at least 1-2 months.
Consider these tips and tricks to make your Christmas tree last longer:
- Buy it fresh from Tacoma Boys! Local, fresh trees like those available at Tacoma Boys are more likely to be cut closer to the time you set them up.
- Trim the bottom of the trunk for a fresh cut before placing it in your tree stand.
- Keep the tree away from major heat sources like fireplaces or radiators.
- Check the water level every other day and refill with fresh water as needed.
Trees are most often the main part of Christmas decorations to set up. But it’s easy to set up Christmas decorations like garland, figurines, and lights elsewhere. For affordable and easily accessible decorations, you might like pinecones, paper snowmen, and of course, stockings! Embellishing the mantle or fireplace hearth is a good place to start— Lights and garland are common on a mantle. That little glimmer of green and sparkle is just enough to spread holiday cheer!
Some varieties of Christmas trees may be a lighter or darker shade of green, or have more or differently shaped branches and needles. Depending on the type of style and tree you’re looking for, you can choose from these varieties at Tacoma Boys:
- Douglas Fir (Xtra Fancy)
- Fraser Fir (Xtra Fancy)
- Noble Fir (Xtra Fancy)
- Nordmann Fir (Xtra Fancy)
- High Alpine (including extra tall)
- Flocked Noble Fir
- Flocked Douglas Fir
To Flock or Not to Flock?
Tacoma Boys offers a variety of standard and flocked Christmas trees. Whatever your preference is, these trees are vibrant and perfectly celebratory. Flocked trees are a nice way to decorate without the effort. Plus, these trees ensure it will be a white Christmas here in Washington. One thing to consider when choosing a tree is pets or animals near a flocked tree. If your cats or dogs are especially young or rambunctious, they may try to nibble on the tree! If so, consider opting for a classic fresh Christmas tree instead.
