  • Flexible wiring allows for easier shaping of branches
  • Available in lengths up to 100 feet
  • Garland with end-to-end lighting allows multiple strands to be connected

Fresh-Cut Christmas Wreaths and Garland

Just like trees, fresh-cut foliage fosters a festive holiday atmosphere. These are typically sourced from the branches of trees known for their pleasant aroma and excellent needle retention. Fir branches are a popular choice, as are spruce and pine. Here are some other things to consider:

  • Fresh-cut varieties are designed for one-season use and should be thrown out after the holiday
  • Prevent needle loss by avoiding use in drafty areas or near heat sources
  • Low-heat lighting such as micro, micro mini or LED lights are recommended

Christmas Garland and Wreath Care and Storage

Since artificial foliage can be used repeatedly, garland and wreath care should continue long after the initial purchase. It is important to store them properly.

  • Wrap fragile decorations before storing
  • Dust off garland and store it in a plastic container
  • Larger items can be placed in specially designed wreath and garland storage bags
  • Pre-lit decorations should be inspected annually for damage
