We offer several varieties of Christmas Trees at our farm. For those looking to learn a bit more, we've included this guide on each species.
Fraser fir is native to high elevations of the Appalachian Mountains of North Carolina, Virginia and Tennessee. Fraser fir continues to increase in popularity for good reason. Fraser fir has blue-green needles with silvery undersides. The branches are stiff and hold up well to ornaments. The trees have a pleasant scent and needle retention is excellent. Fraser fir is widely available at all types of retail locations, typically east of the Rocky Mountains and at choose & cut farms in the mountains of North Carolina, the Virginias, the upper Great Lakes and the Northeast.Check Inventory
Concolor fir (sometimes known as white fir) has a stately and symmetrical form and holds ornaments well. Needles are typically blue-green and, in some cases, can be a dramatic powder blue. The needles of concolor fir are longer than most other firs commonly grown for Christmas trees, giving trees a coarser appearance. Concolor needles have a unique and pleasant scent that is usually described as citrusy or orange-like. Consumers will find Concolor fir in most types of retail locations east of the Rockies.Check Inventory
Douglas-fir has a long tradition as a Christmas tree in the United States and is one of the most popular Christmas tree species. Douglas-fir is a dense tree with soft, light green needles and a very pleasant Christmas tree aroma. Because the branches are not as stiff as some other species, the Douglas-fir is best decorated with light-weight ornaments. Douglas-fir is another good choice for budget-conscious consumers. This species is one of the most widely available Christmas tree species at all types of retail locations from east to west and north to south, as it is grown in all major Christmas tree producing states.
Canaan fir shares many of the characteristics of Balsam and Fraser fir and is actually a specific seed source of balsam fir from the Canaan Valley of West Virginia. It features rich color, pleasant fragrance and an attractive layered structure that is ideal for displaying ornaments. Like Fraser fir, the needles of the Canaan fir are relatively short and soft. You will find Canaan fir at some retail locations east of the Rockies, and most often at choose & cut farms in its native West Virginia, as well as west and north to the Great Lakes states, Pennsylvania, and Ohio.
Korean fir is native to Asia, as noted by the name, but grows well in many regions of the U.S. It has a form similar to Fraser fir and is easily identified by dark green needles with striking silvery undersides. Strong branching and short, relatively soft needles are characteristic of the Korean fir. The fragrance of the Korean fir is a bit different than more traditional species. A relative newcomer to the Christmas tree family, the Korean fir is most often found at Choose & Cut farms in the Great Lakes, Pennsylvania and surrounding areas, and may be found in a limited number of other retail locations.
Colorado blue spruce remains a popular Christmas tree because of its lovely silver-blue color. Branches are stiff and hold heavy ornaments well. Blue spruce needles are quite sharp, so be sure to wear gloves and long-sleeves when handling. While the needles may make the tree hard to handle, some people choose blue spruce to keep pets away from the tree. A great tree for 2-3 weeks of display before needle retention is compromised. Consumers will find the Blue Spruce east of the Rockies and most frequently at retail locations in northern states.
Black Hills spruce features grey-green needles that are shorter and softer than Colorado blue spruce. Black Hills spruce has excellent color and presents a very traditional Christmas tree appearance. Branches are stiff and hold up well to ornaments. A great tree for 2-3 weeks of display before needle retention is compromised. Consumers will find the Black Hills Spruce east of the Rockies and most frequently at retail locations in northern states.
Eastern white pine forms a dense tree with long, soft, green needles. Because of its softer branches, this tree will require light-weight ornaments. White pine foliage exhibits good needle retention and is often used for wreaths, roping, or other greenery. White pine is produced in the Midwest, Great Lakes, the Northeast, and the Appalachians and can be found at many retail locations east of the Rockies.
