Here are some tips on keeping your Premium Balsam Fir Christmas Tree healthy during the season. 

  • Select the tree, online or in store that is the right size for your location. 
  • Cut a minimum of 1 inch off the bottom no more than 1 hour before putting the tree up. Our Treelot staff are happy to give your tree a fresh cut for you. 
  • When putting your tree in the stand make sure your tree is centered and straight (not leaning). 
  • Fill up the tree stand to the very top with water. Golden Acre recommends using a tree preservative. 
  • For the first few days after putting your tree up, your tree will be very thirsty, check the tree stand regularly for water levels and add water and preservative as needed.
  • Leave the tree for 24hrs before decorating so all of the branches and limbs settle. 
  • Decorate and enjoy your tree for the season.

Christmas Trees origin story

Germany is credited with starting the Christmas tree tradition as we now know it in the 16th century when devout Christians brought decorated trees into their homes. Some built Christmas pyramids of wood and decorated them with evergreens and candles if wood was scarce. It is a widely held belief that Martin Luther, the 16th-century Protestant reformer, first added lighted candles to a tree. Walking toward his home one winter evening, composing a sermon, he was awed by the brilliance of stars twinkling amidst evergreens. To recapture the scene for his family, he erected a tree in the main room and wired its branches with lighted candles.

German settlers migrated to Canada from the United States in the 1700s. They brought with them many of the things associated with Christmas we cherish today—Advent calendars, gingerbread houses, cookies—and Christmas trees. When Queen Victoria’s German husband, Prince Albert, put up a Christmas tree at Windsor Castle in 1848, the Christmas tree became a tradition throughout England, the United States, and Canada.
