This is why it’s vital to always water your Christmas tree

A dry Christmas tree is very dangerous

December is not only the most wonderful time of the year, but also the busiest time of the year. By now, you’ll have put up your Christmas tree, unless you’re not a tree kind of person. That’s fine too! But, if you did put up your tree, you might forget to give it water from time to time. Perhaps you think it’s not that big a deal, but we’re here to tell you that it really is.

Watering your Christmas tree could save you and your family’s lives.

Dry

It might sound rather unimportant, but a dry Christmas tree can pose a very big threat to you and your family. Every year, a lot of trees catch fire and usually the culprit is the tree being dry. Do you have a dry tree? The video below shows you what might happen if even the tiniest spark touches it.

Difference

That’s pretty shocking, isn’t it? The video shows you very clearly what the difference is between a tree that’s been watered and a tree that’s been left to dry out. We were shocked by how big the difference it. You don’t see it from the outside, but it’s definitely there. From now on, it’s smart to always provide your Christmas tree with enough water. The best way to care for your tree is to give it a full can of water every two days and to also add a tablespoon of sugar to this water.
