Fireproof Christmas Tree Recipe

Christmas Tree Fireproof Recipes

Barnes Evergreens is happy to provide you with one of the best Christmas Tree Fireproof Recipes we have used. For your safety, and the safety of your family, use one of our favorite Christmas Tree Fireproof Recipes this holiday season.

Fireproofing your Christmas tree will help your tree hold up to seven times its normal weight in water.

To begin, strip three inches of bark off the butt of the tree trunk, so the solution can enter the sides as well as the bottom.

In a separate container mix the following ingredients:

2 qts. hot water
1 pt. Karo syrup
2 oz. liquid bleach
Pinch Epsom salts
1/2 tsp. Borax
6 qts. boiling water

It's important to add the mixture to the Christmas tree stand - the hotter the better the initial time. (Breaking the cold sap down so the solution can work towards the top of the tree is important.) The remaining solution can be added cold as needed.

After a few days, cut a twig off to test. See if a match will burn the needles.
