Episode Show Notes / Description
Richard Hentschel, host of Green Side Up, discusses the history of our holiday tree and current good practices to keep the tree as fresh as possible once in the home. Fresh trees will have a good smell, needles, and stems will bend and won’t be losing a lot of needles. Families can cut their own, starting a great tradition, or selecting from a local organization’s tree lot. Initial watering of the tree is key to having a tree last several weeks indoors.
