After we recycle our Christmas trees and stow away our stockings, one decoration always seems to linger: outdoor Christmas lights.

Rummaging through your box of Christmas ornaments brings back so many memories. Stars made from children’s hands, who have long since grown. Ornaments passed down from generation to generation. Local decorations collected from your travels around the country and the globe.

Fa la la la! It’s the most wonderful time of the year–and our favorite part of the season! We get to head out with our family and wander amongst all the beautiful types of trees, looking for just the right one.

When you planted your new evergreen, you likely imagined it brightening up your snow-covered landscape. While most of your other plants slept, your evergreen would give you that burst of color you so desperately need in colder months!

In winter, you can’t help but smile as you watch those first fluffy snowdrops tumble from the sky. The world seems to stop as you’re filled with awe. That’s why we love bringing that magic inside as we decorate with white, fuzzy fake snow along our mantles.

Have you ever stared at one of your Spartanburg trees and thought, “This would look so much better over there!”?

Whether it’s because it’s outgrown its home or would just look better in a different one, sometimes we have to move our trees.

You’ve whipped up an incredible meal for your family. Naturally, you have some vegetable or bread scraps you didn’t use. You don’t want to throw them in the garbage. Then a thought enters your mind - COMPOSTING!

Oh no! We’re so sorry to hear your formerly beautiful Spartanburg tree appears to be dead. Seeing a Spartanburg tree deteriorate over time and ultimately die is heartbreaking!

Before you keep reading, see if your Spartanburg tree is officially dead or dying.

It may sound counterintuitive at first, but cutting (or pruning) your Spartanburg tree helps it in so many ways.

Think of it like a haircut. Sure, you lose some hair initially, but, your hair shape looks instantly better.

Full canopies, plump fruit, thick bark—all these things describe a healthy tree. But what happens when one is missing?

If your Spartanburg tree is missing chunks of bark, it may not look so hot.
