Oh, Christmas tree, how lovely are thy branches!

And we wanna help you keep ’em that way as your tannenbaum is in transit — while minimizing the risk of damage to your car — or someone else’s.

To help you avoid a holiday disaster of … Griswold-ian proportions, heed these Christmas-tree transportation tips — Yule thank us later:

— First, select the right size

We know it’s tempting to try for the world’s largest Christmas tree, but you need to make sure this thing’s gonna fit in your vehicle’s cargo area or on its roof.

Also be sure you have enough rope or bungee cords to properly secure the tree to the roof rack or cargo hooks.

— Never work without a net

Have your tree netted at the lot to make it less unwieldy and will reduce wind damage to the tree’s needles.
