Before placing the tree in a water bowl, it must be cut fresh on the bottom using a manual or a chainsaw. Using a reciprocal saw will create friction, which in turn creates heat. As a result, the sap will dry out, making it impossible for the tree to absorb water.
After the cut is made, put the tree in the water as soon as possible.
For standard-sized trees between 4 and 8 feet, use a 5-quart bowl and fill it with 4 quarts of water.
For trees taller than 8 feet, fill at least 80 percent of the bowl with water after the stump is placed in. The bowl should accommodate the varying diameters of the stump.
Make sure that the water level is always at least above 1 inch of the bottom tree cut.
If the water level drops below the bottom tree cut, the bottom of the tree will seal, making it unlikely that the tree will absorb water.
The tree should be placed away from sources of heat such as fireplaces, heaters, vents, and other similar locations.
The best way to recycle the tree is to contact your local city. Some cities have a certain date on which their services pick up the tree from the curbside.
You may also contact your local disposal service, parks and recreation department, and other such organizations.
