How to Keep Those Christmas Tree Needles on Your Tree.

The following tips will help keep your tree fresh for as long as possible.

1.

Get the tree in water asap.

Water is the absolute most important thing you can do to preserve your tree for Christmas, Jane Neubauer, Sugar Pines Farm, via marthstewart.com.

2.

Trim the trunk.

Make a perpendicular, half- inch cut to the bottom of a tree "right before you place it in water.".

3.

Water, water, water.

Check the stand daily to make sure your tree is getting all the water it needs to stay fresh.

4.

Be cautious of heat sources.

Place the tree some place where it isn't facing direct heat, and that will help your tree not to dry out too fast, Jane Neubauer, Sugar Pines Farm, via marthstewart.com.

5.

Turn off the lights when you leave the room.

Make sure that all of your bulbs are in good condition and that the light cords are not worn or frayed.
