- Tina’s Trees gives each tree a fresh cut to open up the pores, which have been clogged by sap. We immediately fill the bowl with water while it is on the lot.
- As soon as you get your tree home, fill the bowl with warm water and check the stand for leaks. If there is a problem, call us immediately.
- Water daily. An average tree may consume between a quart and a gallon of water per day. If the water level drops below the cut end of the trunk, a seal will form and water will stop being absorbed by the tree. So don’t forget to add water every day. If the bowl is empty, use hot water to break the seal.
- Use a Christmas Tree Preservative to help keep the tree fresh and green.
- Mini-lights produce minimum heat. Always check light sets for frayed or cracked wire insulation and broken sockets before placing them on a tree.
- Please keep the tree away from heat sources such as heating vents, fireplace, wood stoves and fireplace inserts, radiators, television sets or sunny windows.
- Never burn any part of a Christmas tree in a fireplace!
- Remove tree promptly. The city has a recycling program with designated drop off spots. Or if you would like to have your tree picked up, we recommend:
California Christmas Tree Recycling
Recycle Your Tree, Hassle-free
For a minimum charge of $20, they will drain the water stand, remove the tree, and vacuum needles that have dropped inside the house. They will also pick up your tree from the curb for a reduced fee. Your tree is then mulched and used in future plantings. A portion of the proceeds goes to TreePeople.
Please remove all ornaments, lights, and tinsel.
