why does my christmas tree smell bad

Hello,
One of our biggest industries here in Oregon is Christmas tree s, worked in the industry for, well lets say a couple years LOL! Your tree. Hello, One of our biggest industries here in Oregon is Christmas tree s, worked in the industry for, well lets say a couple years LOL! Your tree should not be smelling like dog. What may have happened is your tree was used as a marking object for a dog when it was bailed up after harvest. Christmas trees need watered DAILY inside a house. Tree s used for Christmas trees are grown in our wet climate to the west.


These need lots of water! Hopefully the trunk of your tree had not dried up to the point it wont receive any more water. Most people jut throw out there tree when Christmas is over. I like to strip the bark to use as popori. For the stench you are experiencing look at the trunk see those round pimples or boils? Pop these, smell your hand. This is what these tree s are bought for, this smell is so strong it should take away the nasty smell.


Good luck. If the bleach doesn't kill them first, try vinager. that's what Heloise uses for almost everything LOL! I would think the bleach would work, but seriously, vinager does get smells out, soak it it vinager water like the bleach, or actually pour some on. Then when they are dry, put them in a plastic bag with lots of baking soda, that will absorb odor while they are packed away. Actually, what I would do, even if the smell gets better is in the summer, pull them out of storage, take out side, shake the baking soda off and leave outdoors of a couple of days, cleaning with vinager again, then after a few days outside, re-bag up with fresh baking soda.


Maybe spray them with Febreeze while out there also, can't hurt So (if you are like me,because you will forget! ) make yourself a big note to put somewhere- maybe with your halloween prop stuff, so you remember to do it, If those things don't work, I don't think any thing will. Good luck!!
