Christmas tree burn: Christmas tree fires report | NFPA

Christmas Tree Heat Release Rate (HRR)

The Department of Fire Protection Engineering at the University of Maryland
hosts an annual competition to predict the burning behavior (heat release rate,
HRR) of a Fraser Fir Christmas tree from ignition to final burnout. More
information about this competition can be found at:
https://fpe.umd.edu/events/christmas-fire-safety-demo.

Peak HRR (kW)
1500

Fire Growth Rate
3.14

Steady Burn Time
1.5

Decay Profile
0.15

On this page, you can ‘build’ (and submit) your own Christmas tree fire HRR
prediction for this year’s competition by adjusting four parameters that
define: fire growth rate, peak heat release, the duration of steady burning,
and fire decay.

For over two decades, the Fire Research Division at NIST has supported
Christmas tree fire safety awareness by conducting multiple burn experiments
using both dry and wet trees. Using measurement science based on oxygen
consumption calorimetry, researchers are able to quantify how rapidly a burning
tree releases energy (heat release rate).

These experiments are part of a of a larger fire science program to 1) support
and promote better public awareness of fire safety during the holiday season
and 2) highlight relevant research projects and tools – both experimental1
and modeling2 – that are developed to quantify the behavior of fire and to
reduce the impact of fire on people, property, and the environment.

This competition also provides a platform for open communication between
members of the fire safety science community. This competition provides an
opportunity to encourage and motivate current researchers and the next
generation of scientists and engineers to explore and develop collaborations
related to emerging areas of fire safety science.

Fox News Completely Freaks Out Over Christmas Tree Fire

In response to a suspected arsonist torching the Fox News “All-American” Christmas tree, the network’s hosts and guests are hailing the incident as “a great symbol of all that is wrong” in “blue cities across this country” and questioning why the FBI and Department of Justice have not launched an investigation. The 50-foot artificial tree, which was located just outside News Corp headquarters in midtown Manhattan, was allegedly set ablaze on Wednesday morning by 49-year-old Craig Tamanaha, who was released on bail after being arrested on charges including arson, criminal mischief, and reckless endangerment. Some of Fox’s on-air talent, however, feel that Tamanaha should face hate crime charges.

“The judge could have found a way to keep him locked up if he felt he was a threat to society,” Fox & Friends cohost Brian Kilmeade said on Thursday morning. “Note to judge: He’s a threat to society.” Kilmeade’s cohost, Steve Doocy, lamented the fact that Tamanaha is not considered a hate crime suspect, given that such charges would bar him from making bail. “Apparently lighting a Christmas tree on fire is not a hate crime,” said Doocy, to which Kilmeade replied, “But it is! Who says it’s not a hate crime against us––against Fox News?” On Wednesday’s show, Kilmeade had claimed that the incident was connected to a much larger issue: a massive crime surge in which “no city is safe” and “no person is safe” all across America. “There is so much crime in places that were always safe, including 48th and Sixth here,” he said. “This is emblematic of these cities out of control, defame and defund the police, and this bail reform that has these men and women, these assailants, these suspects out before they can even finish the paperwork. This is what you get when you have these left-wing D.A.s…running these cities, you get chaos.” (CNN’s Brianna Keilar on Thursday juxtaposed Fox News’s response to the fire with its hosts downplaying or excusing Trump supporters violently attacking the Capitol on January 6.)

Fox News has made the so-called War on Christmas an annual tradition and the fire played into the network’s framing of the holiday under attack. While New York police have said that the crime does not appear to be premeditated or politically motivated, that did not stop hosts from treating the Christmas tree burning like an act of terror against Christians.

“This isn’t just a matter of people setting fire to balsam firs. A Christmas tree is a symbol,” said Tucker Carlson on Wednesday night. “It’s a symbol of a specific culture…. But above all, it’s a symbol of a religion. In this case, the world’s largest religion. Torching Christmas trees is an attack on Christianity. Obviously. It’s an assault on religious observance.” Carlson, who posited that the torching of a Christmas tree should be considered a hate crime carried out by “a dangerous anti-Christian psychopath,” continued by suggesting that the “Biden Justice Department” cares more about “how many Korans were burned last year in the United States” than defending a “religious symbol” used by Christians. “They could care less. Christopher Wray isn’t dispatching a team of FBI agents to get to the bottom of Christmas arson,” he added. “Merrick Garland is not going to issue a press release about it. Trust us.” 

On Fox Business, host Stuart Varney said that the tree burning is “just another example of [Democrat-run] big cities” being “out of control,” while his guest, American Conservative Union chairman Matt Schlapp, said that the incident is part of a large-scale “war on religion” and a “desecration of faith. ” Meanwhile, star Fox host Sean Hannity insisted that the fire is a direct result of the “defund the police” movement. Hannity made the comments alongside Jeanine Pirro, who said the tree burning shows that Americans are now being held hostage by mobs of criminals and “[George] Soros–funded prosecutors” who let them off too easy.

II. “The Christmas tree is burning again…”

The Christmas tree is on again

In dreamy trembling lights.

Again I dream of a calm country road

And in the narrow woods, and in the hills.

Frost crackles and generously scatters

On the low milestones frost of star tears,

And walks quietly and blesses

His cold country Christ.

And illuminating the sleepy lanes

In their timid grief, thought and labors,

Christmas trees are burning

In sparkling diamonds and snow.

Again the moon is burning in our garden,
Without looking away…
Again I will not find you anywhere
All the paths of the radiant garden.
Everything whispers to me about happiness and spring,
Everything evokes timid anxiety,
And a ray of dew, waking up in the moonlight,

BERLIN, November 18 – RIA Novosti. New Year’s lighting of the Christmas tree, which next Thursday as a gift for his department will be received by German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, will work from four o’clock in the afternoon until eight o’clock yesterday in order to save electricity, Cabinet spokesman Steffen Hebestreit said at a government briefing on Friday. “The Christmas tree will be illuminated only between 4 p.m. and 8 p.m. So if someone wants to see it, they must come on time,” Hebeshtreit explained when asked if the government was going to save on Christmas lighting. The Cabinet also added that the tree is illuminated 4920 LED bulbs with a consumption of 287 watts per hour. On Thursday, at 4 pm local time, Scholz will solemnly accept a Christmas tree gift from the German Forestry Association for the office of the German Federal Chancellor.
