Some pines can grow up to sixty feet tall with a spread of thirty feet. Their seeds are spread through their well known, and often craft useful, pine cones.

The Great Basin Bristlecone Pine is believed to be the world's oldest known pine at 4,840 years old.

Christmas Tree Safety

It is the perfect scene: a fully decorated tree, presents wrapped laid under its shade and lights filling the room with the warmth. This scene can, and has, ended tragically for many homeowners. Your tree is a combustible wrapped in a catalyst. There are precautions that can be taken to ensure that you and your family have a safe and happy holiday:
  • Water your tree every day. Keeping your tree well hydrated makes it less susceptible to catching fire when the lights get hot.
  • Make sure to buy a tree that has fresh needles. This not only ensures that your tree will be safe in your home, but it will also mean the tree has a longer life in your home.
  • Check the strand of lights before decorating the tree. Make sure the cord is not worn and there are no loose bulb connections. If you find anything wrong with the lights you will need to replace them. Make sure to connect no more than three strands of lights to any one cord.
  • Turn off all lights, inside and out, before leaving the house and going to bed. All it takes is one electrical mishap to cause a fire.
  • Make sure the tree is at least three feet away from any heat source, such as fireplaces, radiators, candles and heat vents.
Taking these precautions will allow you to enjoy your Christmas tree without any danger. At Amazing Tree Services, we provide customers with fast and efficient tree services in Nutley. Our professionals wish you and your family a safe and happy Christmas.

Live or Artificial Trees?

The time is upon us where the scent of pine trees fills the air and our homes. In recent years, there has been an increase in the sale of artificial trees because most people have become more eco-minded. But are artificial trees really safer for the environment? In fact, there is little environmental difference between the tree cut from the forest and trees produced in a factory.

The environment is impacted by many factors including the distance you drive to retrieve the tree, how you dispose of the tree and how long you keep your artificial tree. Whether you have a real tree or an artificial one, both eventually end up in the land fill.

The removal of trees and their disposal are the things that make them potentially more environmentally friendly. Similar to the way you'd remove any other tree on your property. A tree removal company in Short Hills NJ, like Amazing Tree Service not only cuts down your tree efficiently, but then offers you the remaining kindling for your home.

Picking the Right Christmas Tree

Amazing Tree Service has many years of experience performing Essex County tree services. This winter, our professionals want to bring all of our expertise to your disposal as you begin the task of picking out the right Christmas tree for your home. While there are many people who take advantage of artificial trees at this time of year, the popular choice for this festive season is a real tree.

Here are some tips that will help you pick out the perfect tree this holiday season:
  • There are three major families of Christmas tree that are often used for the holidays: fir trees, spruce trees and pine trees. 
  • Trees in tree lots have sometimes been cut for over two weeks. Moisture is important to check for, since the moisture will keep the tree green and leafy for longer.
  • Pick up and drop the stump of the tree on the ground and see how many needles fall off. This is a good baseline to see how fresh the tree really is.
  • Some trees retain needles better than others – Scotch pines, Douglas firs and other firs have a greater ability to keep their needles longer.
  • Buy a stand and a plastic disposal bag to place underneath your new tree to make cleanup as easy as possible.
