How to Tie Your Christmas Tree to Your Car

It’s that special time of year again and you just scored big at the Christmas tree farm, now all that’s left is to get it home in one piece. That can be easier said than done, but with these tips and tricks you can safely tie your Christmas tree to your car without any added stress.

1. Measure: Before purchasing your Christmas tree, measure the height of the room where you plan to display the tree to ensure it will fit. Ideally, your tree should be at least six inches below the ceiling or lower depending on the size of your tree topper.

2. Use the Right Vehicle: It’s best to transport your new fir tree on top of a vehicle equipped with a roof rack, but if need be you can use the bed of a pickup truck, or an SUV, van, or minivan that can fit the tree inside with all the doors closed.

3. Protect Your Car and Tree: Most Christmas tree farms provide netting, but if you happen to go to one that doesn’t, shake the tree before wrapping it in an old blanket or tarp to free any loose needles. It’s also a good idea to lay down another blanket on the roof or bed of your truck to protect your car from scratches, and ensure the tree won’t shed as many needles on the way home.

4. Position the Tree: The tree should be placed so that the trunk is facing toward the front of the car. This helps prevent wind damage to the tree and guarantees your beautiful tree you just picked out won’t lose too many needles.

5. Tying it in Place with Roof Racks: If you have a roof rack, secure the tree to your vehicle by first opening your car doors; if you try to tie the tree down through the windows, you won’t be able to open your car doors. Next, take a piece of rope and knot it to one side of the roof rack. Stretch the rope across the tree, stopping to wrap the line a couple times around the trunk, before tying off the rope to the roof rack on the other side. Wrapping the line around the trunk helps to prevent the tree from sliding under the line and becoming a danger on the road. All that’s left is to repeat this process at the middle and near the tip of the tree to fully secure it to your ride.

6.Tying it in Place Without Roof Racks: If you don’t have a car with a roof rack, you can still get your tree home safely. As with roof racks, remember to tie down the tree with the doors open, rather than going through the windows. Follow the same instructions as above but use a heavier gauge rope so as to not cut into your car door weather stripping and keep your tree in place.

Whether you get your holiday fir from a local lot or a nearby tree farm, these few foolproof tips can help you transport your Christmas tree without risking life, limb, or damage to your vehicle.
