“Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree”
Probably the most dreadful part of putting away holiday decorations is taking down the tree! The advantage of an artificial Christmas tree is that it can be used year after year. The downside of an artificial Christmas tree is that you have to put it away year after year! The Christmas tree is the treasured focal point of your holiday decoration theme and usually is adorned with meaningful and memorable keepsake ornaments and trimmings. In most cases, it’s also the most expensive holiday decoration in the home. Therefore, how it is stored during the 48 weeks or so it’s not being used requires thoughtful consideration and planning.
Unfortunately, most Christmas trees are taken down and stored in the original box each year. Manufacturers of artificial trees are pros at getting big things in small packages to save space and freight costs. Once opened and decorated, a Christmas tree doesn’t stand a chance at getting back into its original box in the same manner it was by its maker. Additionally, corrugated boxes are not good solutions for the health of your Christmas tree. Basically paper, these boxes deteriorate over time, are a food and nesting source for rodents and bugs and disintegrate when subjected to moisture of any kind. The last thing you want for your beautiful Christmas tree is to become the subject of affection of some critter or develop the same musty, moldy smell its paper box inherited!
Plastic bags and inexpensive tarps are another popular choice for storing Christmas trees. However, most consumers find that tree branches poke through thin plastic and stiff polypropylene materials are not form fitting and become as big a problem when handling as the tree itself!
We have several solutions for storing your Christmas tree. The best choice is to use one of our Rolling Tree Storage Bags. Select from 2 different sizes that will hold artificial trees ranging in heights from 7 feet to 15 feet tall. Our paneled Rolling Tree Storage Bags are the perfect choice for protecting your tree and preserving those Christmas memories!
Another option is our CoverMates™ Christmas Tree Storage Bag. Available in both 48” and 60” lengths, our Christmas Tree Storage Bags are perfect solutions for keeping the entire tree in one bag. Included are individual cinching straps so tree sections can be compressed tightly before being put in the bag. Built into the bag itself are compression straps for a truly custom fit to your tree regardless of how it fits in the bag.
An innovative alternative to the above method of Christmas tree storage is our CoverMates™ Holiday Storage Duffel Bags.

Available in 24”, 36” and 48” lengths, these individual bags can be used to store the individual sections of your tree.
