If you didn’t decorate right after Thanksgiving, then you are a late decorator! There is absolutely nothing wrong with that, but everyone knows that a Christmas tree is the most important part of Christmas decorations. A fresh and live Christmas Fir tree is more popular than ever. Here at Lamarque Ford, we love giving gifts throughout the year. This year, we opened our brand new pre-owned showroom. What a year 2018 has been! Now, we want to give you tips on how to get your fresh-cut tree from the tree farm to your home.
Before you leave your home, it’s a good idea to measure how tall of a tree you are looking for. Next, you should measure your vehicle and decide if you will transport your tree on the roof or inside the cabin. Be sure to also grab some strong rope and a blanket just in case the tree farm or nursery so it doesn’t cut into the weather stripping on your vehicle’s doors. Once you find the perfect tree, you should give the tree a good shake so you can get rid of any loose needles. Wrap your tree in burlap or netting to keep it compact and then put a blanket or burlap between the tree and the vehicle’s roof.
Place the tree on the roof of your vehicle with the trunk pointed towards the front. When you secure the trunk of the tree by wrapping rope around it, then tie each end on opposite sides of the roof. Continue wrapping the rope from one side of the vehicle to the other side.
Sometimes, it’s easy to load up a tree with roof racks. For those without a roof rack, it’s necessary to run the rope through the interior of the vehicle with the doors open. Do NOT run the rope through the windows of the vehicle or you won’t be able to exit. Before hitting the highway, tug your rope to make sure your tree is secure.
Here at Lamarque Ford, Christmas is our favorite time of year because it is when Christ was born! Check out our beautiful Christmas tree at our new pre-owned building.
For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
