The tree should be freshly pruned after purchase and before setting up, so that it can draw water well and last longer. Until the tree is decorated, it must be supplied with water and stored in a cool and dark place. As soon as the tree is in the apartment, it should be checked regularly whether there is still enough water in the Christmas tree stand. Most tree stands are suitable for this.
Beside a real Nordmann fir or spruce there are also numerous artificial trees that look very similar to the originals. These are more expensive to buy, but can be used for several years. Modern interpretations of the Christmas tree are also available in metal.
Have fun buying a Christmas tree!
