Place tree away from heaters, fireplaces and heater vents.
Place plastic sheeting (plastic garbage bag will do) on floor where tree will be placed.
If necessary to move tree, do not handle tree from wood braces. Use the base of the stand to move and or carry the tree.
If tree needs to be straightened, please place magazine(s) under one or two sides of the stand. DO NOT bend tree to straighten since this will cause the nails of the stand to loosen and the stand to leak.
Place WATER in stand as soon as possible. Check water level often. You can purchase a special TREE PRESERVATIVE concentrate at ANTHONY’S. Each bottle will make four gallons of liquid.
Make sure that all electrical light cords are in good condition. Christmas tree lights should be turned off when you leave your residence. Avoid using candles on trees.
Enjoy your Christmas Tree – it was especially planted for your enjoyment. It provided oxygen while it was growing and will serve as a soil conditioner if you have it RECYCLED after Christmas.
