Choose a tree with fresh, green needles that do not fall off when touched.
Placing the tree
Before placing the tree in the stand, cut 2" from the base of the trunk.
Make sure the tree is at least three feet away from any heat source, like fireplaces, radiators, candles, heat vents or lights.
Make sure the tree is not blocking an exit.
Add water to the tree stand. Be sure to add water daily.
Lighting the tree
Use lights that have the label of an independent testing laboratory. Some lights are only for indoor or outdoor use.
Replace any string of lights with worn or broken cords or loose bulb connections. Read manufacturer's instructions for number of light strands to connect.
Never use lit candles to decorate the tree.
Always turn off Christmas tree lights before leaving home or going to bed.
Get rid of the tree after Christmas. Dried-out trees are a fire danger and should not be left in the home or garage, or placed outside against the home. Check with your local community to find a recycling program. Bring outdoor electrical lights inside after the holidays to prevent hazards and make them last longer.

"Lee Goldstein, and The Goldstein Team, was amazing to work with during my house hunting and closing process. From start to finish, Mr. Goldstein advised me on selecting a great home out of others I had been interested in buying, and he often kept in contact and assisted me along the way. He even suggested vendors (i.e. Moving; Homeowners insurance; Alarm system) from a list of companies he provided me that would offer reasonable rates. I successfully closed on my new home on 7/31/2012, and I am so grateful to have had Lee Goldstein as my real estate broker! I totally recommend Lee Goldstein and Team to the next interested home buyer!!! "
