Living Christmas trees create memories that last a lifetime. After enjoying indoors over the holidays, plant it outdoors in your landscape where you can enjoy it throughout the coming years.
Select from a variety of container-grown trees that are suited for Florida, including red cedar, Arizona cypress, or sand pine.
Think beyond the holidays by selecting a tree whose mature size will work in your landscape.
While it’s inside, keep your tree moist but not flooded, and remember that an extended indoor stay could harm the tree.
Once your tree has been planted in the landscape, you can decorate it every holiday season with yard-brightening ornaments, and outdoor lights.
