Not as Fun as Putting it Up!
How to store an artificial Christmas tree can be a dilemma whether this is the first year you've switched from real trees to artificial or you've had an artificial tree for years. One issue is keeping it clean and dust-free while the tree is being stored. Another problem is space when storing your tree. Whether you keep yours in the attic, the basement, or the garage, your tree needs to fit into the area easily. Your tree could be damaged if you have to use force to cram it in, or if other items are pressed too tightly against it or piled on top of it.
If you prefer to take your artificial Christmas tree apart for storage, you will want a large, sturdy, weatherproof bag to store it in. The dimensions should be big enough to accommodate your particular tree's size, and the bag should be made of a durable material that won't tear easily. The weatherproof element is necessary because you never know what will happen. Pipes can break, and rain can leak into attics or basements. Keeping your artificial Christmas tree in a weatherproof bag will ensure that, no matter what surprises may occur, your tree will remain safe and dry until the holidays roll around.
Alternatively, you can save a lot of time taking down the tree and putting it up if you choose to store yours assembled. It is not a new idea. For years, innovative people have been covering artificial Christmas trees with garbage bags or wrapping them in plastic. However, specialized bags are available that are made from the same protective material as traditional storage bags that can be pulled up over your assembled tree to keep it safe, dry, and dust-free no matter where you store it.
