How to store a Christmas tree without taking it apart?

You can store your Christmas tree without taking it apart  by extensively covering it with layers of plastic wrap or 55 gallon garbage bags with little holes in the bottom.

Trees are very durable, so a storage box isn’t really needed. All you really need to do is protect all of the fake needles and branches from dust and cobwebs. 

Proper artificial Christmas tree storage certainly saves space in your home, but also keeps your tree looking good for next year. Poor storage leads to damaged branches, pests and even mold.

A full-sized artificial tree is not a minor purchase, but for every time you reuse the tree, the cost per year decreases. 

After a while, your artificial tree becomes cheaper than a fresh tree. Follow these steps to make your investment last.

In a Christmas Tree Box or Bag

The cardboard box your tree came in is not ideal for long-term storage. You’ll want something that keeps out moisture and pests. A designated Christmas tree box or canvas bag will do the trick. 

If you plan to store your tree vertically, get an upright storage bag. By storing your tree in the right container, you will prevent funky smells, nesting rodents and other problems next holiday season.

Prep

Before you store your tree, get it ready. Blast it with your blow dryer on low heat to remove any lint or dust. Then, gently bend the branches so that they lie flush against the tree.

Grab some bags

Next, grab two 55-gallon trash bags. Poke a hole in the bottom of one of the bags. Then, with the help of a friend, shimmy the tree into the bag and guide the “trunk” of the tree through the hole. 

Secure the mouth of the garbage bag around the tree with some twine. 

Put the second bag over the top of the tree. Secure the opening of the bag around the tree with packing tape or twine. Finish by taping the hole around the trunk closed with packing tape.

Now you can put your tree on its base inside your storage building, if you have one, or toss it in the back of a closet or under a bed. 

The best part is, next December, you will not need to reassemble your tree. All you will need to do is pop it on its base and fluff out the limbs.
