Now we are going to shake the trees up, shake those dead needles out, we are going to bale the trees, wrap the branches back, place it on your car with the butt of the tree forward into the wind so it is streamlined. We have got a nice sappy tree here. There we go. Now we are going to take it in to our baler. Now if you brought your Christmas tree to us, we are going to shake it up, put it on this shaker, it is going to shake any dead or loose needles out of it so it is fresh and clean when you take it home. So we have got the tree all wrapped up and fresh, it is streamlined this way. When you put it on top of your car, put that butt forward. The most important thing is to make a fresh cut on the trunk of the tree when you get it home so that it takes up water and continues to be a live, living, green thing.
