Usually smaller and easier to take care of than cutting down a large fir tree, Christmas trees in a pot still need a fair bit of attention and care if they are to look their best in December. Fir trees in a pot are seen as more sustainable because you have the option to plant the tree in your garden after the holiday season is over, instead of simply throwing it into the garbage. If you like the idea of replanting the tree, then ensure it’s one from your region to give it the best chance of surviving later on.
Remember that potted Christmas trees are typically heavier than a cut tree, so choose a small one if the thought of carrying a heavy tree up some stairs doesn’t sound appealing! These types of trees also need to be transported upright because they are quite delicate.
