7 Safety Tips for a Real Christmas Tree

If you are still traditional when it comes to Christmas, you probably use a real tree. Here are seven safety tips to keep in mind.

  1. The fresher the tree, the less likely it will pose a fire hazard.

  2. Don't use damaged or frayed cords.

  3. Keep the tree away from heat sources.

  4. Never leave the lights on overnight.

  5. The tree stand should contain a continuous source of water and be sturdy enough to resist toppling by kids or pets.

  6. Keep a fire extinguisher nearby.

  7. Keep all your holiday candles away from your Christmas tree.
