Balled Christmas Tree - Knowledgebase Question

For a Christmas gift I received a 4 ft. balled Scotch Pine. I live in Albany, New York. The tree did not come into my home. How do I care for it until it can be safely planted? (eg. watering, storage, etc.) Don't think the ground is frozen yet.

Since the ground isn't frozen, plant it. Water it in well, mulch it, and make sure the soil stays moist until it does freeze. What a wonderful gift!
