    Bought a tree and noticed Christmas day that there was thousands of small spiders crawling all over the tree. My guess is that there must have been a egg sak in the tree and it hatched in my home.

    • Caroline Inge says:

      Hi Windy!

      I’m so sorry to hear about this. This is certainly not what we want for our customers. I would suggest returning to the store where you purchased the tree and informing them of the problem. They should be able to address any concerns you have about the bug problem.

      Good luck!


    • Jae Warren says:

      Hi Wendy. You’re right. It is not uncommon to find spiders or other small insects have taken up domicile in a freshly cut and decorated Christmas tree. Chances are adults that were on the tree back in late summer or fall laid eggs on the stems or foliage. These eggs would have remained dormant through the cold weather of winter, but in your nice warm home they thought it was spring and hatched. Nevertheless, the spiders are harmless and will soon die from of starvation due to the low level of nourishment provided by your increasingly sapless tree. Happy New Year!

    I purchased a Christmas tree from HD 6 days ago. It is completely dead. I hoped it might make it through to Christmas, but there is no way. It won’t even make it through tomorrow. I cannot get through to the store where I purchased it to find out if they will exchange it for me. What can I do?

    • Craig Allen says:

      Dead in six days? That’s certainly not the way it’s supposed to work.

      The first thing I was going to say was that you should talk to the store where you purchased it… but you say you can’t get through?

      Use the store finder on to be sure you have the right store. Call and ask to speak to the manager. Or, if you can, it might help if you actually went back to the store in person. The sooner the better, too.

      I sincerely hope you can get this worked out. A dead Christmas tree is not the type of thing to put you in the Christmas spirit.

    • Joanne says:

      Exact same as me. Bought my tree on Dec 1st, I noticed it wasn’t drinking at all… a week later, BONE dead. There was really no smell either first few days either. Should have stayed with the local lots. They’re always amazing.

      Just called and they want me to bring it back for a refund. There is NO way that is going in my vehicle again. So upset I have to go find a new tree and set it up again.

      Never again will buy a tree from Home Depot. Total Christmas buzzkill.

    My work bought a Christmas tree for the office, the water smell like vomit, it even makes the whole office smells. Wanted to know what we can do? It’s only been 1week that we’ve had the tree. We are very dissapointed with Home Depot Christmas tree.

    • Craig Allen says:

      Oh no. A smell like that will certainly kill the Christmas spirit.

      Fortunately this problem seldom comes up, but we have heard of this happening occasionally. It’s probably caused by bacteria getting a foothold in the tree’s water and living off the wood fibers or sap. Sometimes sawdust can start to smell foul if it’s been wet for a while, which is probably a similar process happening.

      Try removing the water. A turkey baster might do the job. Replace it with fresh tap water– the chlorine of tap water will help keep bacteria from growing again. Add some baking soda to the water– maybe a tablespoon?– to help keep the odor from appearing again. Don’t put too much water in the basin. If you err, err on the side of a wee bit too little water. But keep an eye on the water level, and when or if the water level drops too low, just add a little more as you go. And be sure to wash out the tree stand when you store it away after the holidays.

      I sure hope this solves your problem. If it doesn’t, write back, or talk to the Christmas tree experts at The Home Depot where you bought the tree. We’ll certainly do our best to get to the bottom of this.

      And may your Christmas be fragrant!

      That’s a terrific video. It really spells out the differences between the varieties… and it’s exactly the kind of good advice anyone can get by shopping the tree lots at The Home Depot.

      I hadn’t seen that video until you pointed it out. Thanks!

      There certainly is a lot of good info on the Forums section of
