Christmas Tree Safety

Posted on

A live Christmas tree is a beautiful addition to your holiday decor, but they can be dangerous if not properly cared for! Check out this helpful list that will ensure your tree stays beautiful and safe all season long!

  1. A dry tree can be a fire hazard. the minute your tree was cut, it began to die. Keep your tree as hydrated as possible to keep it from drying out too quickly. Use a stand with enough space to hold water for the tree. Usually, you want a stand that holds one quart of water per inch of stem diameter. Check the stand daily to make sure the water level does not go below the base of the tree.
  2. Avoid electrical hazards. Electricity and drying trees can create a dangerous combination. Always inspect light sets prior to using them. Throw away worn or frayed sets. Do not overload electrical circuits. Turn off tree lights when leaving the house or going to bed.
  3. Prevent the tree from falling. A tree can harm or kill a pet, child, or adult if it falls on them. Use a stand that is sturdy and uses straps or ratchets to fasten the tree. Consider using a wall anchor if necessary to keep the tree from falling.
