You could cut more off, or possibly drill holes into the trunk to allow for more space for water to soak up into it...should of gotten one of those good ol Michigan Pine trees..they'll last (I'll argue for Maine too as I lived there)

also, use sugar water instead of just plain water, it helps.

We always throw a beer in on the first day (don't ask me, I have no idea). But it works, and the needles never fall off, and it always is taking water. Just a thought for next year.
