- Don’t go too big; a tree looks smaller outside than it will in your living room.
- If purchasing a tree on a very cold day, don’t bring it into a warm house immediately.
- If properly watered, most firs will last six to eight weeks indoors.
- Don’t wait too long to buy; some farms close early so as not to deplete their stock of trees for future years.
