You could say that it's still early but shops and garden centers are actually selling quite a lot of Christmas trees - and that includes real trees - so below are some very important tips you need to consider when choosing your Christmas tree for this coming holiday season.
Avoid buying before the December:
Whenever you decide to buy a real Christmas tree, whether you want one with roots in a pot or a cut tree, you will surely find it quite difficult. You might be thinking that you don't want have it so late in a way that the best-shaped trees are all sold out, but on the other hand, if you buy one too early, you might be left with only the bare branches by December 25.

How to choose a cut tree
Keep in mind that trees have to be freshly cut when you buy them. Unless you already got your very own forest, then you should not be in a position to go insisting on this. However, a good way for you to give your tree a boost is to have it kept outside for a couple of days in a bucket of water, then saw the trunk for about an inch at the bottom so it will have a better water uptake. It would be best if you cut trees the same way you cut flowers - they need fresh water. So you should never forget watering it even if you put it indoors.

However, you should know for a fact that the spruce may drop its needles fast. If you don't want this kind of tree, then you should look for one that is able to hold onto the needles all throughout the Christmas which is what a lot of people would choose as it is the ideal tree for people with minimalist-style homes. There are also the kind of trees that suits well in a small room, if that's what you are looking for. These have leaner shape with denser foliage and the added bonus of that wonderful Christmassy scent which is also recommended by some. Read more.
