We are often asked what type of tree is safer? A natural Christmas tree or an artificial Christmas tree?
The fact is it is a personal preference. Both types of trees can be used safely in your home. Natural Christmas trees do require more care and attention. They must be watered at least once a day and do tend to dry out the longer they are left in the house.
Regardless of what type of tree you choose, use common sense and follow the safety tips listed on our web site.
