Finding the Perfect Christmas Tree

(Last Updated On: December 6, 2017)

The time is now! Christmas is less than three weeks away, so come pick out your fresh cut Christmas Tree while we still have them. Our selection of trees is always robust, the lot filled with beautiful Douglas and Frasier Firs.

Shopping for a Christmas tree is a special experience that only comes once a year. For both kids and adults, getting out and walking through a seemingly endless forest of trees perfectly captures the essence of the holiday season. It is an annual memory that lasts a lifetime.

It’s so easy to get caught up in the childish wonder of the holidays when you tree shop at Damblys. We have so many trees of all sizes for you to consider, from massive 12 footers to smaller five foot trees. Finding the perfect tree for your family gathering is easy with such a vast selection, but you can be sure your family will be debating over which of the great options is best!

We sell Douglas and Frasier firs because they are the longest lasting Christmas trees available. Other Christmas shops will sell the Balsam Firs, but those don’t have the lifespan of Douglas or Frasiers. These trees will last you from December through New Years with ease, staying strong and healthy until well into January. If your family celebrates the Christmas holiday into January like so many others, Douglas and Frasier Firs ensure that your tree will look beautiful until your final family gathering has passed.

To really get the most life out of your tree, we recommend you place them by a window or in a cold room. You can also use store bought products like Wilt-Pruf and Pro-long Tree Preservative for better results. Both of these allow trees to retain moisture when they are stressed, keeping them healthy and happy.

While you’re out looking for that perfect Christmas centerpiece, we have a few tips you should keep in mind. First, make sure the tree you buy doesn’t drop too many needles when you purchase it. If it’s dropping a lot of needles, it might be towards the end of its rope and fail to make it through the holidays.

Second, test the branches. If you have a lot of heavy ornaments, your tree won’t live up to its potential if it can’t hold them. Make sure they are firm enough to hold your ornaments.

Third, don’t be too intimidated by an empty spot. Many trees have areas where there just aren’t any branches, but that shouldn’t stop you from buying it if it’s only one spot. Unless your tree is going in the center of the room rather than the corner, only half of it will be visible when it’s on display. Also, branches will drop once you bring the tree into your home, creating a fuller look than what you see on the lot.

Finally, make sure you get part of the bottom of the tree cut off when you buy it. We will always do this for our customers, but others may not. Cutting off a little bit of the bottom opens up a tree’s pores and lets it take in the water it needs. Going along with this, make sure you keep your tree watered! Check the water level several times daily to make sure it doesn’t go without it for an extended period of time.

Be sure to come by our store with any questions you may have on ways to get the most mileage possible out of your cut Christmas tree. Our staff will be more than happy to assist you in any way we can. We hope to see you soon… Happy hunting!
