Helpful Tip from the Garden Geeks: Fresh cut trees are longer lasting and are less likely to become a fire hazard.
A quick test to see if the tree you buy from A Christmas Tree Lot is fresh just bend a needle or two sharply between thumb and forefinger. If the needle is brittle, the tree is too dry; if it springs back to it's original position, the tree is fresh.
