They were on horse back, bicycles, motorcycles and on foot. In addition, the fresher the tree, the longer it will keep its needles.
A study conducted by Forest Products Laboratory in the U.S. concluded that the best way to hydrate Christmas trees was to leave them standing in a container of plain water, and to regularly top it up.
Make sure the tree is not blocking an exit.
What happens to the tree after the presents have been opened is another factor to consider. The Boys & Girls Club sold out of its 5,000 trees about six days earlier than it usually does, and the big tent on US 1 has gone from aromatically festive to totally deserted. Shop early to find healthy trees.

But if you plan to reuse your artificial tree, which most people do, the environmental impact eventually tips in favour of the artificial tree. Living trees can be held in the yard until it's time to bring them inside.
Deputy Chief Greg Kleinberg says, "A really green tree with high moisture content won't easily ignite but a dry tree will and then it goes up really fast". But that turned out to be the Great Recession, when many Americans were tightening their purse strings and not in the market for live Christmas trees. Droves of Bay Area families flock back, year after year, to partake in a lively, charitable tradition: picking out out a tree from the Guardsmen, who donate a large portion of the proceeds to help at-risk youth in San Francisco.
But it's something that Christmas tree growers and manufacturers think about. This is a good way to keep trees from being landfilled or dumped by the side of the road. Pop the rootball into a container that has at least two inches of gravel on the bottom, which will allow for the plant to be watered without it sitting in a puddle. Be sure to add water daily. "Choose either tree, relax, enjoy the holidays".
One of my co-workers shared with me an online article about finding the ideal Christmas tree and the warning about the number of "bugs" it might contain. Remove the container and place the tree in the dug hole so the top of the rootball is slightly above ground level. Bring your tree, once it is free of decorations, for a certificate for a seedling that will be available this spring at the Cayuga County Soil and Water Conservation District's annual plant sale.
