Video clip: Dry tree versus high moisture tree fire

Christmas trees account for hundreds of fires each year. Typically, shorts in electrical lights or open flames from candles, lighters or matches start tree fires. Well-watered trees are not a problem. A dry and neglected tree can be.

This dramatic video demonstrates what happens when fire touches a dry tree and a properly maintained, well-watered tree. Please share this video on your website and social media networks.
