Babies: 9 - 12 Months

My christmas tree is dying... already! :(

When DH came home for his break yesterday, I asked him why our tree looked so sad and droopy. He said he hasn't watered the tree in almost a week! Then he put water in it. This is our first real christmas tree, and it's almost dead 2 weeks before christmas! How depressing! Is there any hope in saving it if we keep watering it???

Re: My christmas tree is dying... already! :(

  • real trees are a lot of work.  please please water it regularly...more fires start with real trees that are not watered.  

     

    I don't know how to save it once it gets that far, but please don't go that long in between waterings..... 

  • I hope you can save it.  This is the reason why I won't consider a real tree.  I would never remember to water.  And like PP said that is a cause of a lot of fires. 

    Can you stick a watering can by your kitchen sink?  Maybe this would help you to remember to water the tree when you are washing dishes.

    This is why I got the most PO'd about it. He said he would water it regularly if we got a real tree, he remembers things better than I do. I couldn't even remember to take my prenatal vitamin daily unless DH reminded me. Oh well, I just won't turn the lights on and hope it still looks pretty on christmas.

  • If you water it daily it should recover.  We've only ever had real trees and they are pretty hardy things.

    I was thinking about taking it down and putting up a fake one. I guess we will just wait and see what it looks like in a few days, and if it doesn't recover we will throw it out and put up a fake one.

  • My mom told us to put sugar in the water, and our trees last until after New years :) Try that!!

  • My family owns a Christmas tree farm so here are a few tips:

    Do not put sugar in the water, it does nothing.

    Yes, keep it watered.  If it ran out of water, the sap will have created a seal on the bottom of the tree and no matter how much water you put in it, it will not drink anymore.

    If you bought a precut tree, then the tree probably came from Canada and was cut in September so it is probably dead anyway.

    Be careful now that it is drying out!!!!
