(NBC) -

If you have a live tree, it may be time to take it down due to the potential of it being a fire hazard. 

If you want to leave it up and enjoy it through the New Year, make sure it doesn't dry out. A dry tree can burn very quickly and according to the National Fire Protection Association, a dry tree can burn faster than newspaper.

When it starts dropping its needles, it's a sign to recycle the tree.
