We also have a dedicated Christmas shop open every day from the 23rd of November right up to Christmas Eve with tons of festive goodies available including decorations, gifts, lights and festive food. Here though, we are going to take a look at a few of the ways to keep your Christmas tree looking fantastic.

Choose Weston Sawmill for Christmas Trees in Shropshire

The very first thing to do is to make sure you buy a tree that is still fresh. You can test this quickly by gently pulling on a branch and seeing how many needles come off in your hand. The less that fall out, the fresher it is. Once you get your Christmas tree home, you should cut around one or two inches off the end which will create a fresh opening in your tree by opening the pores allowing it to absorb fresh water. And, make sure to water your tree regularly but try adding in a sugary drink like lemonade which will provide your Christmas tree with much-needed sugar and citric acids helping prolong the life of the tree and improve needle retention.
