Fresh-Cut Christmas Tree Safety Tip

Nothing beats the look and smell of a fresh-cut Christmas tree. One of the keys to tree safety is placement. Remember to never place your tree within three feet of a heat source including fireplaces, radiators, candles, heat vents or lights. Also, be sure to check its water level daily, never allowing it to go dry. Happy tree hunting, and most importantly, have a safe and happy holiday.
