    Christy Beal, owner of Eclectic Nature Gift and Garden Center, discusses how to choose the perfect Christmas tree for your holiday season.

    Christy Beal: Hello! My name is Christy Beal and I own Eclectic Nature Gift and Garden Center. Today, we are going to talk about how to choose the perfect Christmas tree for your holiday season. We are going to cover what types of Christmas trees there are, how to choose the right size, and the height. You are going to learn how to examine a Christmas tree. We will talk about your stands, caring for your Christmas tree and of course the proper way to dispose of your tree.

    The tools that you are going to need to set up your tree are just the right size stand and perhaps a pair of pruners in case you need to trim any lower branches. Of course, you also might want to have some seven up on hand to mix with water which will help extend the life of your tree or even some flower preserve to mix in with the water for your tree. There are few safety issues when setting up your Christmas tree, but we will go over those later on in the video.

    Let me tell you a little bit about myself. I am a Certified Virginia Nurseryman and Horticulturist and also a landscape designer. So let's get started and show you how to pick out the perfect Christmas tree.
