If you intend to see your Christmas tree survive throughout the holiday season, then you will need to keep it constantly hydrated, in the same way you would water flowers or other household plants.
These Christmas tree stands by Cinco are great for that. They are fairly wide, so can accommodate enough water to keep your tree well watered at all times.
People who have bought these stands really welcomed the fact that they could just set their tree watering duties to auto-pilot; leaving them to get on with other activities.
