Tree Trimming 101


Christmas Tree

Lights, ornaments, action! Paul Olszewski, director of windows at Macy's Herald Square, offers his designer tips for decorating a tree from start to finish.

Perfect Picks
Select a tree with airier branches—like a balsam fir—for accommodating an assortment of ornaments and garlands. If you need a tree that can support larger pieces or heavy balls, choose one with strong branches that won't sag with weight, such as a blue spruce.
