The official publication of the City of La Puente
WINTER 2014
Spotlight
La Puente is a friendly, culturally diverse, family-oriented small town city that provides
quality services in a socially and fiscally responsible manner.
Christmas Tree
Recycling Program
Each holiday season,
the City of La Puente
provides a free Christmas Tree Recycling Program where residents
can either place their
trees curbside or take
their holiday trees to La
Puente Park at 501 N.
Glendora Avenue for
recycling. This year’s
program will begin on
Friday, December 26,
2014 and continue
through Friday, January 9, 2015. For curbside pick-up, simply
place your tree next to
your trash containers on
your regular trash collection day. Trees over
6 feet in height need to
be cut in half.
Christmas trees must
be free of all decorations.
This means removing all
lights, tinsel, garland,
plastic wrap, tree stands,
wire, rope, nails, and all
other items from trees
before recycling them.
Sorry, flocked trees will
not be collected curbside or accepted at the
drop-off bin at La Puente
Park.
Recycling your tree
saves valuable landfill space! Trees are
grounded into mulch,
compost, or used as
bio-fuel.
While the program is
free of charge, individuals dropping off their holiday trees at La Puente
Park must be a City of
La Puente resident to
participate. For further
information, please call
La Puente City Hall at
(626) 855-1500 or call
Valley Vista Services at
(800) 442-6454.
New Businesses at Hacienda
and Fairgrove
Retail construction rapidly
continues in many of the shopping centers throughout the
City. The City is excited to
offer the community new opportunities to shop local.
The shopping center at
Hacienda and Fairgrove is
welcoming a number of new
businesses. Menchie’s Frozen Yogurt (1265 N. Hacienda
Boulevard) held its official
grand opening on Saturday,
September 27, 2014 which
was followed by La Puente’s
first Starbuck’s in October
(1283 N. Hacienda Boulevard)
and finally Harbor Freight
Tools (1291 N. Hacienda
Boulevard) celebrating its
Grand Opening on November 12, 2014. A host of new
neighbors next to Starbuck’s
will be opening in early 2015.
Waba Grill is due to open at
1279 N. Hacienda Boulevard
and Pizza Hut at 1251 N. Hacienda Boulevard.
Residents are encouraged
to visit these new businesses
as well as all businesses in the
City to keep local tax revenues
in the community and help our
local business economy.
Starbuck’s Coffee, Harbor Freight Tools, and Menchie’s Frozen Yogurt
all opened recently at Hacienda and Fairgrove. (City of La Puente)

LOCAL STREET RESURFACING AND SANTO ORO
STORM DRAIN IMPROVEMENT PROJECT
The City is completing the
Local Street Resurfacing and
Santo Oro Storm Drain Improvements in the street segments
of Sierra Vista Court (from
Hacienda Blvd. to Glendora
Ave.), Santo Oro Avenue (from
Hacienda Blvd. to Temple Ave.),
Gaylawn Court (from Santo Oro
Ave. to Temple Ave.) and Banbridge Avenue (from Bamboo
St. to the north end). The project
enhances the safety condition
of various local streets by repaving of the roadway, signing
and striping, repair of damaged
concrete areas, the installation
of new handicapped ramps,
and new storm drain
improvements and
block wall construction in order to alleviate storm water
drainage and standing water issues within the neighborhood.
The cost of this project is approximately
$827,000 with funding from Measure R
and Sewer Funds.
SAFE ROUTE TO SCHOOL
CYCLE 10 IMPROVEMENT
PROJECT
In March 2012, the City
submitted a competitive grant
application to the State of California for funding consideration
under Cycle 10 of the Safe
Routes to Schools Program
(SR2S). The City was granted
an allocation of $387,000 to
improve pedestrian safety for
students.
The improvements underway consist of traffic signals
and pedestrian improvements
such as curb extensions, rapid
rectangular flashing beacons
and center median fencing
near the intersection of Hacienda Boulevard and Prichard
Street. Other improvements
include upgrades to school
crosswalk signs, installation
of high visibility crosswalks,
speed awareness signs, and
seventy (70) countdown pedestrian head crosswalk signs
at signalized intersections.
The improvements are within
the vicinity of La Puente High
School, Workman Elementary School, and Sierra Vista
Middle School. This project was
funded through the SR2S Grant
and augmented with Local Gas
Tax funds. The project cost is
approximately $461,000.
Santo Oro Avenue and Gaylawn Court are two resurfacing projects being
completed by the City of La Puente. (Google Images)

Spotlight: New Old Town Puente
Business - Golden Vision
Golden Vision is an up
and coming clothing store
that is now open in the Old
Town La Puente. Not only
does this store offer big brand
clothing lines such as Obey,
Diamond, The Hundreds,
and many more, but Golden
Vision also carries their own
clothing brand, All Seeing and
Goldest Era. These brands
were founded in 2013by three
young adults between the
ages of 19 and 20 that started
off with selling their own products from the trunks of their
cars’. Business sky rocketed
which allowed them to open up
a store of their own. The City of
La Puente is looking forward to
filling the streets of Old Town
Puente with new customers to
this youth focused store.

L.E.A.D. Project Aims to Empower Kids
This year is off to a great start
as La Puente schools Workman and Sunset Elementary as
well as Sparks Middle School
work to educate, engage, and
empower students and families
with Project Kids L.E.A.D, Life
Experience About Democracy!
Project LEAD’s aim is to build
bridges and access so that all
students can truly have more
meaningful participation in the
La Puente community.
The energy and excitement
are abound as students at
all three schools began the
year with students and parents
packing the school cafeterias
to learn about the operation of
city government and its members. Students were able to ask
questions from city staffers and
elected officials.
Students, parents, and staffs
from all three schools, including
La Puente High School, teamed
up with the city in support of La
Puente’s first Community Clean
Up Day. The community brought
new life into the La Puente Community Center with planting,
painting, and sprucing up.
Sunset and Workman Elementary as well Sparks Middle
schools are atmospheres where
leaders are born and leadership
cultivated. Project LEAD has
been growing in all directions.
Our students were educated
about Healthy Choices regarding diet and exercise by The
Hacienda La Puente Unified
School District’s Director of
Food Services, Ms. Emmalyn
Coles. Students then took their
learning and enthusiasm and
led a booth at the La Puente
Health Fair. Students took
leadership in educating other
students about healthy choices.
Along with information, they
handed out almonds and super
nutritious water. Participants
had their thirst quenched with
a refreshing cup of ice water
with lemon, cucumber, and
chia seeds. Student leaders
continue to attract more community members when they
hula hooped and jump roped to
the DJ’s upbeat music. There
was cardio fun to be had all
around.
LEAD schools share their
activities at The La Puente City
council meetings and report out
their monthly activities. LEAD
has several opportunities for
students and families planned
throughout the year and are
looking forward to a growing
and lasting partnership.

L.A. County Fire’s Monthly Public Education Campaign
L.A. County Fire’s Monthly Public Education Campaign
December/Issue 12 of 12
November/Issue 11 of 12
The Holiday season can be a joyous time, filled with trees decorated from top to bottom and
houses adorned with festive lights. The Los Angeles County Fire Department would like to
remind everyone to stay safe this holiday season by practicing holiday and decoration safety.
Each year, dry Christmas trees and holiday lights cause of hundreds of house fires. Your Fire
Department has come up with a few simple tips to help prevent these accidents.
Each year, hundreds of people die from Carbon Monoxide poisoning and Space Heater-related
fires. The Los Angeles County Fire Department reminds residents to always check all fire
alarms and carbon monoxide gas alarms throughout the home and replace all batteries every
six months to maintain them in working condition. Here are some tips to help keep you and
your family safe from the dangers of carbon monoxide and space heaters.
Carbon Monoxide
Dos & Don’ts of Space Heaters
Carbon Monoxide, or CO,
is considered a silent
killer. It is an odorless,
tasteless gas that cannot
be seen. Carbon
monoxide poisoning can
be a result of faulty
furnaces or other heating
appliances, such as
portable generators,
water heaters, clothes dryers, or cars left running in garages.
Some symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning include
headaches, nausea, and drowsiness. Being exposed to
undetected high levels of Carbon Monoxide can be fatal. In
California, it is the law that every home and multi-home
dwelling have a working carbon monoxide detector installed.
Below are a few tips on how to avoid Carbon Monoxide
poisoning — and what to do in case your CO alarm sounds.
Space heaters have recently
become a popular and
inexpensive way to keep warm
during the cold winter months.
The Los Angeles County Fire
Department would like to
remind you to properly use
space heaters. Each year
hundreds of fires are started as
a result of improperly used
space heaters. We would like to offer several dos and
don’ts for space heater safety to keep you and your family
safe during the cold winter months.
CO Precautions:

Make sure all fuel-burning, vented equipment is vented
to the outside to avoid CO poisoning.

Keep the venting for exhaust clear and unblocked.
DOS

Place the heater on a level, hard, nonflammable
surface, such as a ceramic tile floor.

Make sure any heater is at least three feet away from
any flammable materials, such as bedding, drapes, and
furniture.

Keep children and pets away from space heaters.

Always turn off the heater when you leave the room.
DON’TS

General Safety Rules for Holiday Safety

home this holiday season.
unless the directions state that it is
safe to do so. Make sure to
periodically check the wires, as they
should not be warm to the touch.

Holiday Lights

Always maintain your holiday lights.
Each year before hanging check for
frayed wires, bare spots, gaps in the
insulation, broken or cracked sockets,
and excessive kinking or wear.
Do not leave holiday lights on
unattended.
Holiday Decorations
could put you and your family at risk.

Candle Care

Never leave a burning candle unattended; consider using battery operated
candles instead.

If you do use lit candles, never place
them on a tree. Place them in a stable
candle holder.

Use only nonflammable decorations or 
flame retardant ones. Decorations
should always be placed or hung away
from any heat source.

Make sure that your tree or any of your
decorations do not block an exit way.
If a fire occurs, a blocked exit way


Do not link more than three light strands
Never put wrapping paper in the fireplace; it could cause a very large fire,
throwing off dangerous embers and
sparks that could result in a chimney fire.
Keep candles at least 12 inches away
from all flammable materials,
decorations and wrapping paper.
Make sure to keep lit candles away from
children and in an area where they
cannot be blown or knocked over.
Christmas Tree Safety
There are many alternatives to fresh trees. Many of the
artificial trees are fire-resistant. If you buy one, look for a
statement specifying this protection.
If you decide to go with a fresh tree, use these tips to
determine how fresh your tree is. A fresh tree will stay green
longer and be less of a fire hazard than a dry tree. In order to
check a tree for freshness, remember:

A fresh tree is green.

Fresh needles are hard to pull from branches.

When bent between your fingers, fresh needles do not
break.

The trunk of a fresh tree is sticky with resin.

When the trunk of a tree is bounced on the ground, a
shower of falling needles shows that the tree is too dry.
When setting up a tree, place it away from any fireplaces,
radiators and other heat sources. Heated rooms dry out trees
quickly producing a fire hazard. Use thin guy-wires to secure a
large tree to walls or ceiling.
Make sure to keep fresh trees in a
sturdy, water-holding base. To
prevent the tree from drying out,
keep the stand filled with water as
long as it is indoors.

Plant annuals in early January. Lawn care—always water your lawn in
the morning. Watering in the evening encourages fungus diseases. In
January, feed lawn and apply crabgrass killer but do not water for 2 days
after application. Use weed and feed for other weeds.

Bare root Planting: Deciduous fruit and shade trees, berries and roses.
If you are unable to plant immediately, place bare roots into damp soil,
sawdust, wood shavings or sand and keep moist. Soak roots in water before
planting.
Soil preparation: Prepare for bare root planting by digging holes and adding
compost.
Grapes: Start more grapes from cuttings. Cut 12 inch stems with at least
one bud node near the top. Bury all but the top 2 inches in good garden
soil and keep moist.
Prune: Now is the time for the heaviest pruning. All deciduous fruit trees,
berries and grapes. Cut impatiens back, removing all lanky stems. Don’t
prune spring flowering shrubs and vines until they are through flowering.
Prune rose bushes now, but do not prune climbing roses until after spring
flowering.
Plant: Amaryllis bulbs in a sunny or semi-shaded area, in loose soil with
good drainage. Plant with the tip of the bulb just showing.
Buy: Summer bulbs such as tuberous begonias, cannas, dahlias, lilies and
gladiolus.
Feed: Citrus trees need slow release ammonium sulfate then deeply water.
Feed staghorn ferns with bone meal or a high nitrogen liquid fertilizer.
Water: For fruit trees, roses and lawns, reduce the amount of water because
too much water can damage roots.
February
Pest Control: Spray deciduous plants with horticultural oil now to smother
mites, scale and other insects. To prevent fungal disease in deciduous fruit
trees, add lime sulfur or fixed copper to the oil following package directions.
For apricot trees, use only fixed copper. For peach trees, add lime sulfur to
the oil.
Prune: Wisteria should be pruned before spring growth. Prune deciduous
fruit and ornamental trees, grapes, vines, and roses. If you have a plumeria
tree, now is the time to shape or thin the branches. You can start new plumeria
plants from the cuttings for yourself or to give to friends.
Fertilize: Wait until the leaves on the roses turn from red to green, and
then give them the first feeding of the year. Feed established roses using a
balanced plant food high in phosphorus. Feed camellias and other flowering
plants with a plant food which contains nitrogen, potassium and phosphorus.
Apply a complete fertilizer to deciduous fruit trees two to three weeks before
trees begin to bloom. Feed ground cover and other permanent plants with
a slow release fertilizer such as bone meal.
Lawn Weed Control: Apply a pre-emergent herbicide to prevent crabgrass
and other annual weed seeds from germinating.
Plant: Set out seedlings of peas, broccoli, cauliflower, beets, celery, lettuce,
carrots, cabbage, onions, turnips and parsley. Tomatoes and peppers can
be planted after the middle of the month. Gladioli corms can be planted now.
Finish planting bare root roses, fruit trees, grapes and berries.
March
Divide Perennials: If perennials are crowded and last year’s blooms were
sparse, it is time to divide them. Dig each clump so root ball comes up,
shake off excess dirt, and divide. Each plant should have some leaves and
plenty of roots, then plant immediately.
Pruning: Prune camellias and azaleas after blooming. If part of your plants
have frozen areas, do not prune until mid-spring and then cut off only the
damaged area. If you prune damaged plants now, there might be further
frost damage. Also prune hibiscus and other evergreen plants.
Pest Control: Spray for aphids and start crab grass control and watch for
snails. Protect fruit trees from brown rot fungus by spraying chlorotlhalonil
fungicide and remove any “mummies” or remains of fruit that can harbor
spores. Prevent wormy apples and codling moth larvae by spraying with
carbaryl or malathion every ten days for the next six weeks.
Fertilize: Feed roses, avocados, citrus trees and lawns. Before feeding roses,
wait until their leaves turn from red to green. Avocados require two feedings
of nitrogen fertilizer per year. First feeding should be in March. Citrus trees
require nitrogen fertilizer in mid March. Apply a quarter cup of Epsom salts
to mature roses, citrus, avocado and other fruit trees to increase their yield
of flowers and fruit.
Plant: Cilantro, corn, squash, melons, tomatoes, peppers and green beans,
impatiens, sunflowers, petunias, verbena zinnias bearded iris, lamb’s ears,
daisy, geraniums, agapanthus, citrus and avocado.
Watering: All plants, but especially container plants, are vulnerable to dry
March winds and can dehydrate. For container plants, add more potting
soil around the inside edges of containers and water more frequently so that
plants will not dry out and die.

CICLO 10 DE LA MEJORA
DEL PROYECTO RUTA SE-
GURA A LA ESCUELA
En marzo de 2012, el Concilio de la Ciudad presentó
una solicitud de subvención
competitiva al Estado de California para financiación en
virtud del Ciclo 10 de las Rutas Seguras al Programa de
Escuelas (SR2S). La ciudad
se le concedió una asignación
de $387,000 para mejorar la
seguridad peatonal para los
estudiantes.
Las mejoras consisten en
señales de tráfico y mejoras
peatonales tales como extensiones de las aceras, unas
señales de advertencia intermitentes rectangulares rápidas
y centro de cercos medianos
cercanos en la intersección de
Puente también tendrá juegos
de paseo, juegos para jugar,
y otras atracciones del día de
fiestas. ¡Hasta se va aparecer el
mismo Santa Claus! Para más
información, por favor llame al

Hacienda Boulevard y Prichard
Street. Otras mejoras incluyen
mejoras a los signos cruceros
peatonales de la escuela, la
instalación de cruces peatonales de alta visibilidad,
concienciación de señales
de velocidad, y setenta (70)
cruceros peatonales en las intersecciones principales señalizadas. Las mejoras están en
las proximidades de La Puente
High School, la Escuela Primaria Workman, y Sierra Vista
Middle School. Este proyecto
fue financiado a través de la
subvención SR2S y aumentado
con fondos de los impuestos
locales del gas. El costo del
proyecto es aproximadamente
$461,000.

Programa de Reciclaje de Árboles de Navidad
Cada estación del día de
fiestas, la Ciudad de La Puente
proporciona un programa de
Reciclaje gratis de Disponer
del Árbol de Navidad donde
los residentes pueden colocar
sus árboles en la acera o bien
llevar sus árboles del día de
fiesta al parque de La Puente
al 501 N. Glendora Avenue
para reciclar. El programa este
año comenzará el jueves 26
de diciembre 2013 y continuara el viernes, 10 de enero
2014. Si usted quiere que
su árbol sea recogido de su
acera, simplemente colóquelo
al lado de sus contenedores
de basura durante su día de
colección regular. Árboles más
de 6 pies de altura tienen que
ser cortados a la mitad.
Los árboles de Navidad
deben estar libres de todas las
decoraciones. Esto significa la
eliminación de todas las luces,
oropel, guirnaldas, bolsa de
plástico, soportes de árboles,
alambre, cuerda, clavos, y
todos los otros artículos que
tengan en los árboles antes de
reciclarlos. Lo sentimos, pero
árboles que tengan nieve artificial no serán coleccionados
en la acera o aceptados en el
parque de La Puente.
¡Al reciclar su árbol ahorra el
espacio valioso del terraplén!
Los árboles están molidos ha
estiércol vegetal, abono, o
utilizados como bio-combustible.
Mientras que el programa
es gratuito, las personas que
disponen de sus árboles del
día de fiestas deben ser residentes de la Ciudad de La
Puente para poder participar.

por favor a la Municipal de La
Ciudad de La Puente al (626)

Proyecto LEAD se Dirige en Empoderar a los Niños
¡Este año ha tenido un gran
comienzo ya que las escuelas
de La Puente Workman y
Sunset Elementary, así como
Sparks Middle School trabajan para educar, participar, y
empoderar a los estudiantes y
las familias con el Proyecto de
Niños L.E.A.D, !Experiencia
de Vida Sobre la Democracia!
El objetivo del Proyecto LEAD
es construir puentes y acceso
para que todos los estudiantes
puedan realmente tener una
participación más significativa en la comunidad de La
Puente.
La energía y el entusiasmo
fueron abundantes ya que
los estudiantes de las tres
escuelas comenzaron el año
llenando las cafeterías de las
escuelas con estudiantes y
padres para aprender sobre
el funcionamiento del gobierno
de la ciudad y de sus miembros. Los estudiantes pudieron
hacer preguntas a los miembros del personal de la ciudad
y oficiales electos.
Los estudiantes, padres y
personal de las tres escuelas,
incluyendo La Puente High
School, se asociaron con la
ciudad en apoyo del primer Día
de Limpieza en la Comunidad
Compra en La Puente
La Ciudad ha puesto en
marcha una campaña de
“Shop La Puente” o “Compra

campaña termina oficial-
mente el 31 de diciembre.
Hasta entonces, se permite
a los negocios locales para

Seguridad de Monóxido de Carbono y Calentador
Seguridad Para Fiestas Navideñas Y Decoraciónes
Campaña Mensual de Educación Pública de Los Bomberos del Condado de Los Angeles
Campaña Mensual de Educación Pública de Los Bomberos del Condado de Los Angeles
Noviembre/Edición 11 de 12
Diciembre/Edición 12 de 12
Cada año cientos de personas mueren de intoxicación por monóxide de carbono y incendios
debidos a los calentadores. Los Bomberos del Condado de Los Angeles les quiere recorder a
los residentes a siempre revisar todas las alarmas de incendio y las alarmas de gas de
monóxido de carbono en toda la casa y reemplazar todas las baterias cada seis meses para
mantenerlos en condiciones de trabajo. Les ofresemos algunos consejos sobre cómo
mantenera usted y a su familia a salvo de los peligros del monóxido de carbono y los
calentadores.
Monóxido de Carbono
Monóxido de carbono, o CO,
es considerado un asesino
silencioso. Es un gas
insipido e inodoro que no
puede ser visto.
Intoxicación por monóxido
de carbono puede ser el
resultado de los hornos
defectuosos o otros
aparatos de calefacción tal
como generadores
portatiles, calentadores de agua, secadoras de ropa, o autos que
han dejados andando en el garaje. Algunos de los simptomes de
intoxicación de monoxide de carbono incluyen dolores de cabeza,
nausea, y somnolencia. Estar expuesto a altos niveles de
monóxido de carbono que no estan detectados, puede ser mortal.
En California, es la ley que cada casa debe tener un detector de
monóxido de carbono instalado. A continuación se presentan
algunos consejos sobre cómo evitar la intoxicación por monóxide
de carbono y qué hacer en caso de que suene la alarma de CO.
Precauciones de CO:

Asegúrese de que todos los equipos de ventilación que
quemen combustible se ventile hacia el exterior para evitar la
intoxicación por CO.

Mantenga la ventilación de escape limpias y destapadas.

Si necesita calentar un vehículo, sacarlo del garaje en cuanto
encienda el motor, aunque esten abiertas las puertas del
garaje.

Un generador debe utilizarse en un lugar al aire libre y bien
ventilado, lejos de ventanas, puertas, y aberturas de
ventilación.
Si Suena la Alarma de CO:


Pasar inmediatamente a un lugar al aire libre (afuera o cerca
de una venta abierta). Asegurése de que todos la personas
dentro de la casa se tienen en cuenta.
Llame al 9-1-1 o al Departamento de Bomberos desde un
lugar al aire libre. Permaneser en este lugar hasta que
personal de emergencia llegan a ayudarle.
La temporada Navideña puede ser un tiempo muy feliz, llena de árboles decorados de arriba a
abajo con luces festivas. El Departamento de Bomberos del Condado de Los Angeles quiere
recordarles a todos a mantenerse a salvo por poner en practica la seguridad de decoraciones
y luces festivas. Cada año, árboles de Pascuas y luces festivas son la causa de cientos de
incendios de casa. Su Departamento de Bomberos ha creado unos simples consejos para
prevenir accidentes.
El Qué Hacer y Qué no Hacer
de los Calentadores
Los calentadores de ambiente se
han convertido recientemente en
una forma popular y económica
para mantener el calor durante los
meses friós del Invierno. Los Bomberos del Condado de Los Angeles
les quisiera recordar que debe
utilizar correctamente los calentadores. Cada año cientos de incendios se inician como consecuencia de los calentadores
utilizados incorrectamente. Nos gustaría ofrecer algunos hacer y
no hacer para la seguridad de los calentadores para mentener a su
y a su familia seguros durante los meses de invierno.
HACER

Coloque el calentador en una superficie dura, nivelada, y inflammable, tal como un piso de baldosa cerámica.

Asegurese que el calentador este al menos tres pies de distancia de cualquier material inflamable , tal como cubre camas, cortinas, y muebles.

Mantengan a los niños y mascotas alejados de los calentadores.

Siempre apague el calfactor cuando salga de un cuarto.
NO HACER

Nunca deje un calentador prendido cuando se duerma.

No coloque un calentador cerca de alguien que este durmiendo, pueden dar vuelta en la noche y quemarse.

No utilice calentadores portatiles de gas propano adentro de
una casa o en cualquier espacio cerrado a menos que esten
diseñados especificamente para su uso en interiors.
Siguiendo estos consejos sencillos puede significar la differencia
entre la vida y la muerte. Por favor, recuerde que solo toma un
momento para un calentador desatendido para causar un incendio.

o colgadas lejos de cualquier fuente de
calor.

Si usa velas encendidas, nunca coloque
las velas en un arbol. Colóquelas en un
candelabro estable.

Asegurese de que su arbol o sus deco
raciones no obstruye una salida. Si
incendio ocurre, una salida obstruyida
puede poner a usted y a su famila en
riesgo.
Mantenga las velas a un mínimo de 12
pulgadas de distancia de cualquier material inflamable, decoraciones, y papel de
regalo.
Asegúrese de mantener las velas encendidas lejos de los niños y en una area
adonde no puedan ser derribados.
Árboles
Hay muchas alternativas a árboles frescos. Muchos de los
árboles artificiales son resistente al fuego. Si usted compra
uno, busque una declaración que indique esta protección.
Si decide comprar un árbol fresco, use estos consejos para
determinar que tan fresco esta su árbol. Un árbol fresco se
mantiene verde por mas tiempo y es meno susceptible a ser
peligro de incendio que un árbol seco. Para determinar la
frescura de un árbol , recuerde lo siguiente:

Un árbol fresco es verde.

Es difícil halar las agujas (hojas) de los ramos del árbol.

Cuando joroba las agujas (hojas) entre sus dedos, agujas
(hojas) frescas no se quiebran.

El tronco de un árbol fresco esta pegajoso con resina.

Si observa caer una lluvia de agujas (hojas) cuando
rebota el tronco del árbol contra el piso, entonces el arbol
esta muy seco.
Cuando vaya a montar el árbol, colóquelo lejos de chimeneas,
calefacción eléctrica o cualquier recurso o aparato que emita
calor.
Asegúrese de mantener árboles
frescos en una base fuerte con
agua. Para evitar secadura, mantenga la base llena de agua mientras que este adentro de su casa.
