For some, it's a holiday family tradition to go out and pick the perfect Christmas tree and cut it down. Dick Darling from Darling's Tree Farm in Clifton Springs was a guest on the Finger Lakes Morning News, and he suggests getting your trees locally.
If you aren't going to put the tree up right away, keep it in the garage or the barn with a bucket of water. If you're going to wait longer, cut about an inch off the bottom to open the pores back up before putting it in the stand.
And he says if you want it to look nice for Christmas, you have to keep watering it.
