Xmas tree - dried out... Recovery possible?

Hey folks,

Not sure what happened, my tree was sucking up water like mad the last 2 weeks... (don't get me started, i'm the grinch in this family) This weekend thought it was kind of strange I didn't need to refill the resevoir...

Got home tonight to a droopy tree.

So I pulled down the decor, cut another 2" off the base - set it back up.

Question is, is it already too late? Should I just suck it up go buy another, or wait and see? Needles are holding, but all the branches have curled over, needles are curling up...

Is this tree sitting under or near a heat vent or close to a window with alot of sunlight?

Any of these will dry the tree out in short time and it's impossible to recover.

Where did you get the tree? I had the same problem last year and bought it from the orange big box store. They replaced it with a better one no questions asked.

So, next to the south facing patio window isn't good...

Yup big orange box store, but can't say much bad about them, this is the first year I've had trouble in 5-6 years buying there (charlie brown tree vs nice tree with orange label for the same price).
