Where To Cut Down Your Own Christmas Tree Around Burlington, Oakville and Milton
Thursday Nov 15th, 2018Share
If you’d like the experience of heading out with your family to cut down your own Christmas tree this year, the Sue Heddle Homes team has compiled a list of six local options around Oakville, Milton and Burlington. Adding a beautiful fresh tree to your home is lovely way to decorate for the holidays.
Before you head out to select that perfect tree, here are some helpful tips to know when selecting a fresh Christmas tree:
- Figure out where you want to display the tree before actually going to get a tree so that you know how tall a tree to get.
- To test how fresh a tree is, hold a branch about six inches from the tip, between your thumb and finger, then pull your hand toward you allowing the branch to slip through your fingers. Needles should not fall off of the branch.
- Bend a needle between your fingers and thumb. The needle should form a "U" without breaking.
- For pre-cut trees lift tree a couple of inches from off the ground, bring it down briskly on the stump. Outside needles should not fall in large numbers.
- The tree should have a fresh fragrance and a bright green colour.
