Taking good care of your ECO-friendly KORTEGAARD Christmas tree is essential for the tree to stay fresh and look beautiful until after Christmas. We highly recommend following the below care instructions. If you have any questions about tree care, please do not hesitate to contact us directly or ask your local garden centre.

Cut Christmas trees

  • Remove netting and keep the tree outside until required indoors.
  • Saw 2-3 cm off the base of the trunk and ideally insert the tree into a water holding stand. A Christmas tree is like a cut flower, it needs water to stay fresh. By sawing a thin slice off the base of the trunk, the tree’s ability to absorb water is increased significantly thus staying fresh and looking beautiful.
  • Bring the tree inside and position in a cool dry place away from direct heat. Avoiding direct heat will help keeping the tree fresh and last until after Christmas.
  • Keep the water reservoir topped up daily.
  • After Christmas when finished with your ECO-friendly Christmas tree, please take it to your local recycling station for chipping and composting, or compost it in your own garden if possible. This way, your tree serves another useful purpose.

Container-grown (pot grown) Christmas trees

  • Remove netting and keep the tree outside until required indoors.
  • Bring the tree inside and position in a cool dry place away from direct heat. Avoiding direct heat will help keeping the tree fresh and live on.
  • Keep the pot topped up daily if necessary. A container-grown Christmas tree is like a pot plant and it is important not to over-water, make sure the soil is always moist.
  • A container-grown Christmas tree is a hardy nursery product which will grow on after Christmas if treated appropriately when indoors. After Christmas, bring the tree outside and plant in your garden or replant in a bigger pot to allow the roots to grow on. It is important to keep watering your container-grown tree after Christmas. For further growing advice, please speak to your local garden centre.
