When you are ready to decorate the tree, cut about 1 cm off the butt end and place the tree in a bucket of water or suitable stand. A tree will absorb as much as 4 litres of water in the first 24 hours and one or two litres a day thereafter. Water is important because it helps to prevent the needles from drying and drooping. Water also keeps the tree fragrant. Keep the tree stand filled with water. A seal of dried sap will form over the cut stump in four hours or so. If the water drops below the base of the tree, it prevents the tree from absorbing water later when the tree stand is refilled. If a seal does form another fresh cut will need to be made. Commercially prepared mixes, aspirin, sugar and other additives added to water are not necessary. Research has shown that plain water will keep a tree fresh.
