Live Christmas Tree Tips:

Nothing beats the smell of a real Christmas tree,
and Lowe's offers a great selection of freshly cut evergreens.
Here's how to keep your tree fresh for the holidays.

(You can even make your own drum-shaped tree stand.)

1. If the tree is precut, trim a half inch off the bottom
of the trunk before putting it in the tree stand.

2. Water the tree daily.
Make sure the trunk is always submerged in water.

3. Use a tree stand that fits your tree so you
don't have to whittle down the trunk.

4. Keep the tree sway from heat sources like
vents or a fireplace so it doesn't dry out too quickly.

Decorate with LED lights.
They stay cool to the touch.
