Choosing a Safe Christmas Tree

If artificial, make sure it’s labeled ‘fire-resistant’

Before you install and decorate your holiday tree, make sure it’s safe for you and your family.

The American Academy of Pediatrics mentions these guidelines for choosing a Christmas tree:

Look for a fire-resistant label on any artificial tree.

  • Make sure any live tree is fresh, with needles that bend between your fingers and do not easily fall off the tree. The trunk should also be sticky with sap.
  • Place your tree away from a fireplace, portable heater or radiator, and make sure it does not block a doorway.
  • To keep your live tree from getting too dry, chop off a few inches from the base of the trunk.
  • Keep the tree stand filled with water.
