Well, this statement is only true if you have an artificial tree. Otherwise, adding fresh water to the tree stand is necessary every 24 hours. It may sound like high maintenance, but it’s worth it for those that prefer, the wonderful smell of pine and all the lovely traits of a real Christmas tree.
A real tree, absorbs a half to a gallon of water a day. Other methods, of keeping a longer life to the tree, is having the bottom of the trunk cut on an angle, instead of straight across.
There is still a debate on the effectiveness of adding an aspirin to the water of the tree stand, to benefit the longevity of the natural tree. Truth is, all I know is, it doesn’t hurt it, so why not add a pill to the water every or every other day. But, if you don’t have aspirin, you may not feel the rush to go out and get some.
