BEFORE PUTTING YOUR TREE IN ITS STAND, CUT IT AROUND THE BASE.
Cut a 1/2-inch thick disk off the base of the tree trunk to make it easier for the tree to absorb water.Once your tree is set up, fill it to the top. After that, add water daily so it doesn't dry out—you'll need about 1 quart of water per inch of the trunk in diameter.
USE A PVC PIPE AND A FUNNEL TO GET WATER TO THE TREE.
Easily water your tree without getting gook or needles all over you is to place PVC pipe into the reservoir and then simply pour water into the funnel, so it travels through the pipe into the reservoir.
