Great info! Ours is fake, do I still water it? Just kidding! Never had a real tree, my dad is a retired fireman and he said he's been on to many house fires from Christmas trees and we weren't having one. I been in several myself from when I volunteered as a fireman for 12 years. I'll take the fake one!

Good advice Jeff.

We have had an artificial tree for about 10 years now (of my 31+ years of marriage). Always said I'd never get one, but now, I'd never go back to real; too much of a fire hazard.

Thanks again for the reminder and be safe!

Thanks Jeff, great info for anybody with a real tree. If you have a dog it may water the tree for you. As for me, all twenty of our trees are fake.
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.
