Picking The Best Christmas Tree Tips

Picking The Best Christmas Tree Tips

ILLINOIS (RFD) — Christmas tree shopping? And looking to buy a real one? The U of I Extension has a few tips in order to get just the right tree. University of Illinois Extension’s Richard Hentschel says the freshest option is to cut your own and consider what you want out of your tree.

Buying a tree from the Boy Scouts or off a hardware store lot? Richard says give the tree a good shake on the ground to see how many needles fall off. And when you get the tree put it right into a bucket of water.
