Buy the ultimate gift this holiday season, a live Christmas tree with a root ball. Live Christmas trees be ordered from a catalog or online or by visiting a garden center/nursery in your community.
Officials at the Apple House in Terre Haute recommend you warm up the tree before bringing it in the house, so it doesn’t get shocked by the warmth of your house. A live tree with a root ball should only be kept inside for seven to ten days in order for it to stay healthy.
You should dig the hole for the tree now, so you are not digging in frozen ground. It is also recommended that you put a board over the hole, so someone does not fall in it. Remember to plant your new tree in the right place. One must take into account how big the tree is going to grow to make sure that, 20 years from now, it will fit into the space where you are planting it. Remember to give your tree plenty of water while it is in the house and after you plant it in the ground.
Finally, once the holidays are over, officials recommend you cool the tree back down between two to three days in the same place you warmed it up, so the tree does not get shocked by the winter weather.
Live Christmas Trees with the root ball make a great commemorative tree to celebrate a birth, anniversary or memory, as you can watch it grow over the years.
