Real Christmas Trees: How to Prevent Fires

Have a safe holiday season with these fire-prevention tips for real Christmas trees.

Fresh pine trees just add something to the season. But they can be fire hazards, so it’s important to take some precautions.

If live Christmas trees are your go-to, help keep your home fire-safe with these simple tips:

Choose the Right Tree

Keep Your Tree Safe at Home

Remember Decorating Safety

Know When to Say Goodbye
The drier the tree, the greater the fire hazard. Dispose of your tree no later than a month after Christmas. You’ll also spare yourself mounds of needles if you dispose of your tree shortly after the holiday.
