Nothing says Christmas like a live tree. But be sure to get it home safely. 20 million Americans who bought a fresh-cut tree in the last several years didn't property secure it-risking damage to their vehicle, endangering other motorists and facing possible penalties. A few tips:
If you don't have a roof rack, try the bed of a pickup truck or inside an SUV or a van
Use quality tie-downs-rope or nylon ratchet straps-and have the tree wrapped in netting.
Point the bottom of the trunk toward the front so air can move over the branches smoothly when you drive.
Give the tree a tug test to make sure it's firmly in place.
