LED lights Produce Minimum Heat

The newer LED lights use far less electricity so they produce almost no heat which reduces the drying effect upon a tree. Always check light sets for frayed or cracked wire insulation and broken sockets before placing them on a tree.

Keys to a healthy tree and safe Christmas!

  • Water Regularly!
  • Always turn off the lights of your tree when leaving the house or retiring for the night.
  • Never use lighted candles.
  • Keep away from heat sources.
  • Do not attempt to repair a worn light set. Throw it away and buy a new set.
  • Place the tree away from heat sources such as heating vents, fireplaces, wood stoves and fireplace inserts, radiators, television sets or sunny windows.
  • Remove the tree promptly after the holiday. Check for your local chipping and composting program with the parks and recreation department, local nursery or service organization.
  • Never burn any part of a Christmas tree in a wood stove or fireplace!
