Caring for your Christmas tree is an important part of the holiday season. Just as we make sure we're drinking enough water, our fresh-cut or live Christmas tree also needs consistent hydration. Once your tree takes its proud place in your living room, the key is to maintain the water level in the tree stand. Did you know that a real Christmas tree can consume a gallon of water or more a day during the first week?
It doesn’t matter if you pick your tree from a tree lot or make a new cut from a tree farm; it doesn’t matter if you go with an evergreen Fraser fir or Scotch pine. One thing remains consistent: the base of the tree needs to soak up plenty of water. The purer the water, the better the water uptake. That's why we recommend giving your Christmas tree water from Clearly Filtered water filters.
