When is the earliest you put up your real tree? I haven't had a real one in years so I can't remember just how early it can go up....

No more than 2 weeks. Make sure to cut about 4-6" off the bottom of the tree so it can suck up the water and add water daily.

I try to go two to three weeks before Christmas. Any more than that it gets dry and brown. They last longer if you cut your own though. Remember to water well and cut a few inches off the bottom

We always had a real tree when I was little. Always went up after Dec. 10th.

We always get our tree on December 4th or the weekend after, that way we have 3 weeks to enjoy it before Christmas and we usually take it down New Years Day weekend.

I think we only had a real tree a few times. And ours never went up until after the first week of december was over, ever-real or fake.
