Fresh Christmas Trees Are Back At Gin'Gilli's Vintage Home!

Make your holiday season complete 
with the sight and scent of a real tree!

There is no denying the special holiday feeling that comes with bringing home a fresh, green Christmas tree. Whether you crave a more traditional experience or simply enjoy the festive smell of pine in the air, selecting and decorating a real Christmas tree is a fun activity that the whole family can enjoy. Fresh-cut and live Christmas trees are back at Gin'Gilli's Vintage Home and you can shop for one right outside the front of our shop!  We have a wide variety of lush Douglas & Noble Firs fresh cut from the green mountainsides of Oregon - come in today for the best selection!

Care and Maintenance

Having a fresh tree requires additional care. As soon as you get the tree home, make a new cut on the trunk so it can readily absorb water. Saw ½-1” off the base and immediately place it in water. Keeping your tree hydrated is the key to maintaining a healthy, vibrant life. Trees drink a considerable amount of water, as much as a gallon or more a day, depending on the type and size of the tree. Make sure your stand has a large enough capacity to keep the base of the trunk submerged at all times. Fresh-cut trees usually last between 4 and 6 weeks, so now is the perfect time to come on down and get yours at Gin'Gilli's Vintage Home!

  • Be sure to choose a stand that can fit around the entire width of the tree trunk
  • Stands should have a minimum capacity of 1 qt. of water for every inch of stem diameter
  • Check water daily and make sure that the base of the tree is always covered
  • Water your tree using plain tap water with no additives for best results
  • Recycle your tree at the end of the season through your local community program
