What are some things we should do before buying a live Christmas tree? (e.g. should we measure how ceiling height, etc.?)
We should know the ceiling height available at the display location and find out what is the ideal height of the tree for the area. For example, if the hall is big, perfect height of the tree is about 1 foot less than the ceiling height. If the area is smaller in size, we can decide to have a tree with the maximum height of 2 feet lesser than the ceiling height for aesthetics purpose. We should also consider the width of the tree at the base. Usually, for a well-formed Premium grade Christmas tree, the base width is approximately 0.5 to 0.6 times the height and hence the client has to consider the available space.
When is the best time to buy a Christmas tree so that it will last during the Christmas season? (how long do they usually last?)
The usual life span of the Christmas trees after removing it out of the icing container is maximum 30 days. So the best time to make your purchase is the first week of December if you wish to have it last until the new year.
What are the different types of Christmas trees out there, and how do we know which one is for us?
There are many types of Christmas trees available from the US growers. They are Norman Fir, Noble Fir, Douglas Fir, Fraser Fir, Grand Fir and Balsam Fir.
Under Singapore climatic conditions, Noble Fir has been proven to have the maximum shelf life, with sweet fragrance and bluish green colour attractive foliage.
When choosing a tree, how do we make sure if it is fresh? What should we look out for?
When choosing a tree, make sure to select from the latest stock so that you can have a maximum shelf life. The trees from the same lot will not have much difference in terms of quality.
When the tree reaches our home, should we transfer it into a separate planter?
The tree comes with a loan stand which will be collected back by Prince’s when the tree is dismantled after usage. Transferring of tree to a separate planter is not necessary.
Where is the best place in the home to put the tree so that it will not dry out?
The best place is a shady, cool area where evaporation is at its minimum. Do not expose the Christmas Tree to sunlight, heat, windy conditions or directly in front of the air-conditioner.
Should we put cold water or will room temperature water do?
Cold water is preferred as it prolongs the shelf life of the tree to some extent. Adding ice to the water will provide the same effect. If cold water is not available, topping up with ordinary room temperature water is fine.
There are ways to ensure the condition of the tree does not deteriorate any further. Replacing the water in the stand with hot water will help clear the tubes of the stem of dirt and dried sap for the tree to absorb water. Warmer water gets absorbed much faster (and helps promote the fragrance) so after the initial replacement, if the water level drops (which is a good sign), you may proceed to transition to top-up the reservoir with room temperature to cold water in order to maintain a suitable temperature for the tree. Placing ice cubes in the reservoir helps with slow release of water when leaving it unattended for a longer period of time.
What other things should we add into the water to preserve it?
The addition of mosquito pellets into the water to terminate mosquito larvae if any or to prevent the mosquito issue due to water stagnation.
What are some of the maintenance work you have to do to care for your Christmas tree? Do you have to water them daily? Do you have to trim them?
The pine leaves tend to shed from the day it leaves the container. The initial phase will be very minimum. The leaves will start to shed with time from the 3rd to 4th week. Shedding of leaves is a natural phenomenon. Topping up of water at the trough is required, once in 2 to 3 days. Trimming is not necessary.
Never let a water drop below where the tree was cut and be exposed to air once the cut is dried, there will be no way for the tree to take in water any longer. Misting the tree lightly with cold water will help to regulate a conducive temperature and humidity of the tree. Ventilation is also crucial, as all living things, the tree needs to breathe. So ensure a good circulation of air where the tree is places.
When is the time to throw the tree away?
The trees will turn brownish from the branches’ tips. Typically, the browning starts from the 3rd week of setting up. The browning of the leaves will be more evident by the 4th week of setting up and it is time to dispose of the trees.
How should we dispose of the tree?
Prince’s provides disposal service of the trees with pre-arranged schedule. You may opt to dispose of the trees by yourselves as well, and the stand shall be collected back by Prince’s based on schedule.

Why the Noble Fir
Scientific Name: Abies procera
Maximum Height: 70m
Native: The Cascade Range and Coast Range mountains of Western Oregon & Washington
Long considered to be an excellent Christmas tree due to its beautiful appearance, sturdy branches and long retention, the species is growing in popularity.
Beautifully symmetrical with smooth bark.
Roughly 4-sided bluish-green needles that appear to have a silver hue because of white rows of stomata on its surfaces.
Stiff, sturdy branches are ideal for heavy ornaments.
Its lightweight and strong nature are reasons why it is often used as wreaths and garlands as well.
Ability to retain moisture better compared to most other varieties, the Noble Fir has a long keep ability, ensuring the needles stay intact longer throughout the festive period.
Keep your Christmas trees away from open flames, heaters, candles and other source of fire, heat or sparks, check tree lights for missing or broken bulbs, keep plenty of water in the base, make sure extension cords are not frayed or overloaded. Make sure candles are out before leaving, place candles on a stable surface and be sure to keep candles out of the reach of children and keep matches and lighters in a safe place.
Fire Retardant Treatment
Here at Prince’s Landscape, we are the first in Singapore to offer an option for treatment to your Noble Firs with a Fire Retardant coating that protects from combustion by creating a barrier when subjected to fire, sparks or embers from short circuit incidents or heat from any lighting ornament over prolonged periods of time. The coating used is transparent, odourless, non-toxic and environmentally friendly.
Fire Retardant Treatment does not eliminate the fire hazard; It is only used to slow down or stop the spread of the fire, or reduce its intensity, thus, it is always best to have safe practices to prevent any unfortunate happenings over the festive period.
