HOW TO CARE FOR FLOCKED CHRISTMAS TREE.

Flocked Christmas Tree
Valley View Christmas Trees proud to be one few Christmas Tree Lots that offers fresh flocked trees and wreaths, a tradition we have tended since the 1980’s. Fresh flocked trees have longer lifespans as the flocking locks in the moisture and preserves the needles. Although flocked trees do not require a water source, water will further preserve your tree. Flocking comes in all colors (white, pink, blue, red, yellow, purple, and black) and can be custom ordered or selected from our flocked tree showroom.
Place your tree away from any sources of heat. This will prevent it from drying out, especially as it will not draw water.Flocking is fire-retardant but not fire-proof, so this will also keep the tree from catching on fire. Decorate your tree with miniature lights, which give off much less heat than large lights Transporting to your home: Valley View Christmas Tree will wrap your flocked tree in a clear plastic covering which will protect the flocking as it is transported to your home.
