But first, a couple of words for environmentalists who have already uncovered the scabbard. Spruce is not a rare plant, it is not listed in the Red Book. She has excellent regeneration – in 5-7 years she grows up to one and a half meters. Of course, mass felling of trees is bad. The Earth's atmosphere is indignant.

But let's remember that Christmas trees for holidays are grown in a special.nurseries. And let's also think about the damage to the environment from the work of one (even a small) factory for the production of artificial fir trees.

Of course, there are poachers in our country, illegal logging, recycling and recycling of "unnecessary" trees has not been debugged in any way, but this is a completely different story.

So far, 5 simple tips on how to choose a Christmas tree.

Tip 1. Choose a size

It depends on your apartment conditions and where you plan to place the hostess of the holiday. For the center of a large hall, a 2-2.5 meter spruce (or even pine) is suitable, for a "red" corner in a small room, a tree is no more than 1.5 meters in length.

Regardless of the size, do not put Christmas trees next to radiators or under air conditioners – the tree will be uncomfortable there and it is unlikely to please you for a long time.

Tip 2. Inspect the tree trunk

At one and a half meter Christmas tree in diameter, it should be about 5-6 centimeters. At the same time, its surface should be smooth, smooth, without any suspicious growths and mold.

If you see suspicious formations on the trunk, most likely, the tree is sick. It's not worth buying it.

Then pick it up. A good fluffy Christmas tree weighs from 5 to 7 kilograms.

Tip 3. Sniff

Supporters of living New Year's beauties declare with one voice that an artificial substitute will never smell like a real Christmas tree, and will not return them to childhood even for a moment. It's true.

Therefore, after examining the trunk, tear off a couple of needles and rub them in your hands. Does it smell like a New Year? And there was a slightly oily trace on the palm? Great! This tree was cut down recently and according to all the rules.

Also, hit the tree trunk on the ground. Are all the needles still in place? You've got a great copy.

Tip 4. Slightly bend one of the branches

Dry firewood is easily chopped. The branches of a dried-up diseased tree break at the slightest touch to them.

You can't break a live spruce full of juice. Her paws are elastic and bend quite well. Therefore, before buying, slightly bend one of the branches. If it doesn't break off, then you can safely take it.

By the way, it will be easier to deliver such a Christmas tree home. It is enough just to tie the branches to the trunk so that they do not stick out much, with a rope or twine.

Tip 5. Take your time

I've always wondered how Zhenya Lukashin can decorate a Christmas tree on December 31? It's almost New Year's Eve, and he just came to his senses!

In fact, the hero of the well-known movie is a real – December 31 the cheapest Christmas trees. 2-3 weeks before the holiday, merchants of Christmas markets set the maximum price for their goods. And gradually, as the X hour approaches, the cost is lowered.

So on the very eve of the New Year, you can buy a Christmas tree for almost nothing.

However, there is a risk that by this time the most bald and ugly specimens will remain. But even among them you can find a great Christmas tree. At least, if you follow the tips given above.
