Buying and caring for your Christmas tree may not be the weightiest problem on your mind as we move into the Christmas season.  But, if you plan to have a natural Christmas tree in your home this year, you’ll need to give some thought to both subjects.  Keep in mind that a fresh tree with good shape and sturdy branches usually will make the best tree for displaying and decorating.  Make sure you keep the tree in the collect possible place, and that you water it every day.  Take the time to properly care for your Christmas tree, and it will reward your efforts with radiant beauty throughout the holiday season.
