FRESH CUT CHRISTMAS TREES

  • Fraser Fir – “Traditional” Christmas tree. Short, dark ½” green needles. Nice scent. Most popular.
  • Douglas-Fir – Very fragrant! Soft branches with 1” needles are good for lighter ornaments.
  • Nordmann Fir – Very popular in Europe. Short, dark green needles on strong branches. Only a slight fragrance. Holds needles for a long time.
  • Noble Fir – Decorator’s dream! 1” blue-green needles on flat, sturdy branches. Great for heavier ornaments. Nice fragrance.

Very Important: Remember to give your new Christmas tree a fresh cut (about ½”) and place it in water when you get home. Never let it go dry. We can give it a fresh cut for you, just ask the tree attendant helping you.
