Bring your Thorntons' Treeland stand back in future years and have your tree stand mounted free of charge.
If you prefer to install your stand yourself, follow the directions on the 'Treeland Treestand' page on the main website.
With its large reservoir, you'll find you don't have to add water as often, but don't forget to watch the water level.
Many trees are over 150 feet tall and pump hundreds of gallons of water a day! A tree in a Christmas tree stand does the same thing, drawing water up through its trunk. Put the tree in water as soon as possible. This will allow the tree to continue to absorb water.
The Treeland Treestand holds 5 quarts of water, and a 10 quart bowl is also available. For refilling the water, pick up our Santa's Water Magic Spout! It makes adding water easy.
If there is a delay in putting the tree in water, the pores on the bottom of the truck can become clogged with sap. If necessary, you can make a fresh cut on the butt of the tree to open up the pores which have been clogged by sap. Cut off at least one-half inch. The fresh-cut surface should be cream-white, not yellow or brown.
Keep a close eye on the level of water in your Christmas tree stand, and add water whenever it begins to get low. You'll be surprised at how much water it uses! An average tree may consume between a quart and a gallon of water per day.
Osmosis works because of the difference of the concentration of the sap inside the roots and the water in the ground. Sap has a higher concentration of sugary nutrients, and the water moves from the lower concentration of the ground water to the higher concentration of the sap.
Sunshine makes the water evaporate from leaves. The water escapes from the leaves as water vapor.
