It’s such fun to put up the Christmas tree and decorate it with your family. But the take-down the end of the holidays? Not so much… You might have escaped the mess of tree needles by opting for an artificial tree, but with these, you face the dreaded issue of storage. It is possible to make the process of
Lots of people take down the tree and try to cram it back into the original box, but good luck getting it to fit. Besides, all the time spent fluffing the tree branches and getting them to look just right is wasted when you mash it back into an impossibly small box. To make storage more efficient and protective — and make set-up easier too — it’s time to invest in a Christmas tree bag. These can be a godsend and come in a range of sizes and price points to fit not only any tree but also any budget. Christmas tree bags also have some distinct advantages.
Safe and secure
No matter where you store your artificial tree, a good Christmas tree bag will protect it from dust, dirt, moisture and even unwelcome critters. In fact, using the original box from the tree isn’t a good idea because it doesn’t offer any protection from light, moisture or other damage. While experts recommend that you stash it away in a spot that’s dry, dark and temperature-controlled, that’s not always possible, making the right bag a necessity if you want your tree to last.
So many types of bags are available that you can find one to make life much easier. If you have a large tree, certain types of bags come with wheels and let you roll it away for storage. Some types will cover a fully assembled tree making next year’s holiday chores a breeze. Of course, you must have a place to store a fully assembled tree in the off-season if you opt for this type of Christmas tree bag
The Right Size
It’s really important to know the size of your tree so that you buy the proper size Christmas tree bag. This is true whether you choose an upright style that allows you to leave the tree assembled or one that stores a disassembled tree. For upright bags, you’ll need to check the diameter of the bag as well.
The Best Quality
You’ll want to choose the most durable bag that you can afford. It’s also important to consider where you will be storing the tree. If you’re stashing it in a closet or a finished, temperature-controlled basement, you can go with a lighter bag if you prefer. However, if you have to store your tree and décor in an unheated attic, damp basement or outdoor storage shed, you’ll want to choose something that closes very securely and is water-resistant.
