To keep your fresh-cut Christmas tree from Patton's looking its best all holiday season long, follow these tips:

  1. Choose a Fresh Tree: Select a healthy tree with vibrant green needles and a strong fragrance.

  2. Make a Fresh Cut: If you buy it from Patton's Christmas Trees, it will be freshly cut. If you  buy one elsewhere, make sure to request that they make a fresh cut. Or, if you get one from a farm, make sure to make a straight, fresh cut at the base of the trunk (about 1 inch) to allow the tree to absorb water more effectively.

  3. Use a Suitable Tree Stand: Patton's will install a sturdy wooden tree stand on the tree of your choice. It will include a built in water bowl. If you buy a tree from another lot or farm, make sure to choose a tree stand with a water bowl that can hold an adequate amount of water. A good rule of thumb is that a Christmas tree can absorb about a quart of water per inch of trunk diameter.

  4. Water Regularly: Keep the tree stand filled with water at all times. Check the water level daily, especially in the first few days when the tree may drink more water. Never let the water level drop below the cut end of the trunk.

  5. Keep Away from Heat Sources: Place your tree away from sources of heat, such as radiators, fireplaces, and heat vents. High temperatures can cause the tree to dry out more quickly.

  6. Use LED Lights: If you decorate the tree with lights, opt for energy-efficient LED lights, which generate less heat and reduce the risk of drying out the tree.

  7. Minimize Light Exposure: Turn off the tree lights when you're not in the room to reduce heat and prevent excessive drying.

  8. Spray with Water: Occasionally mist the tree with water to increase humidity around it, which can help slow down the drying process.

  9. Avoid Overcrowding: Don't overload the tree with heavy ornaments, as this can stress the branches and cause needles to drop prematurely.

  10. Recycle After the Holidays: When the holiday season is over, recycle your Christmas tree. Patton's offers pick up for a fee. Call for info! Some communities offer curbside pickup or drop-off locations for recycling. (Look under "What should I do with my Christmas tree after the holidays?" on this page.)

Buying a real Christmas tree can be a wonderful tradition, but it's essential to prioritize safety. Here are some safety tips for those who purchase real Christmas trees:

  1. Choose a Fresh Tree: Select a fresh tree with vibrant green needles that do not easily fall off when touched. Patton's Christmas Trees receives fresh  shipments of trees, wreaths and  greenery throughout the season to ensure that our trees are the freshest in Dallas!

  2. Give it a Fresh Cut: Here at Patton's Christmas Trees, we always give whatever tree you choose a fresh cut. We then attach a tree stand with a built-in water bowl to it.  When you bring the tree home, just fill the bowl up with water. Monitor the water level in the bowl each day if possible. 

  3. Proper Tree Stand: If you don't buy your tree from Patton's, make sure that the tree lot or farm that you buy from uses a sturdy tree stand with a water bowl that can hold an adequate amount of water. Also, ensure it is sized appropriately for your tree's trunk diameter.

  4. Water Regularly: Keep the tree stand filled with water at all times. Check the water level daily, especially in the first few days when the tree may drink more water.

  5. Avoid Heat Sources: Place the tree away from sources of heat, such as radiators, fireplaces, and heat vents, which can dry out the tree and pose a fire hazard.

  6. Use Safe Lighting: If you decorate the tree with lights, use UL-approved, safety-tested Christmas lights, and inspect them for damaged wires or bulbs before use.

  7. Turn Off Lights: Always turn off the tree lights when you're not at home or when you go to bed to reduce the risk of electrical fires.

  8. Securely Anchor the Tree: Ensure that the tree is securely anchored in the stand to prevent it from tipping over, especially if you have pets or young children.

  9. Check for Allergies: If anyone in your household has allergies, consider low-allergenic tree species like the Fraser fir. Patton's sells several types of Fir trees including the Fraser Fir!

  10. Keep an Eye on Pets: Pets may be attracted to the tree water, which invites trouble from a balance standpoint. Also, if you will add  preservatives or chemicals to the water, this is could be a danger to your animals. Always use a tree skirt or some sort of barrier to keep pets away.

  11. Dispose of Trees Safely: After the holidays, recycle your Christmas tree through a local program or dispose of it safely to prevent fire hazards.

  12. Follow Candle Safety: If you use candles as decorations, keep them away from the tree and never leave them unattended.

By following these safety tips, you can enjoy the beauty of a real Christmas tree while minimizing the associated risks.

If you or someone in your household has allergies, it's generally a good idea to choose a Christmas tree with minimal allergenic potential. In this case, you may want to consider a species like the Fraser fir. (You're in luck because Patton's Christmas Trees sells Fraser firs!) Fraser fir Christmas trees are known for having low allergenicity because they have certain characteristics that can help reduce allergen exposure:

  1. Low Pollen Production: Fraser fir trees typically produce less pollen compared to some other tree species, which can be a common allergen.

  2. Good Needle Retention: These trees often have excellent needle retention, which means they're less likely to shed allergenic tree debris like pollen and needles into the indoor environment.

  3. Less Resin: Fraser firs tend to have lower levels of resin, reducing the likelihood of allergic reactions to tree sap.

However, it's essential to remember that even low-allergenic trees can still carry some allergens. To further minimize allergen exposure, you can take additional precautions:

  • Shake the Tree: Before bringing the tree indoors, have it shaken to remove loose needles and debris that may contain allergens.
  • Use an Air Purifier: Consider using an air purifier with a HEPA filter in the room where you place the tree to help capture airborne allergens.
  • Frequently Water the Tree: Keeping the tree well-watered can help reduce the release of allergenic particles.

Ultimately, individual allergies vary, so it's a good idea to consult with an allergist or healthcare professional for personalized advice on selecting a Christmas tree if you have specific concerns about allergies.

No, we do not sell Christmas trees that have been treated with pesticides or harmful chemicals.
