Ask Aunt Laura: Keeping your Christmas Tree fresh for longer


I bought my Christmas tree yesterday and boy did I have sticker shock! Not only was it expensive but the trees available were closer to 6′ instead of 8′. Such a disappointment but it also gave me an extra incentive for finding ways to keep my tree fresher for longer. Hope you find these hints helpful too!
