Some people really go all out to decorate their homes for Christmas. Lights, snowmen, and elaborate blow-up lawn ornaments line the streets. Los Angeles might not get a lot of snow, but there are plenty of ways to make it feel like a winter wonderland.
Almost every family celebrates Christmas will put a Christmas tree up in their home. It is an essential part of any holiday home. The only difference from home to home is how big the tree is, and unless you have a tree delivery service you are going to have to figure out how you’re getting that tree home. We’ll give you a few tips to make sure you make it home safe with your tree.
How To Transport a Christmas Tree Safely
One of the first things to do before you go out to cut a tree is to find out if your car has roof racks or not. It is going to be a lot easier to transport a tree if you do have roof racks. These racks give you a much easier place to tie down your tree. You can still tie your tree down without them, but it is a bit more difficult.
If you are tying a tree to your car roof, then you should put down a blanket first. This will help prevent your roof from getting scratched and protect the needs as well. Be sure to have the trunk of the tree facing forward when you tie it down to your vehicle. Always give the tree a few test tugs when you have it tied down to make sure it is secured. You should also plane for the return trip to take a bit longer as you don’t want to speed home.
