CHRISTMAS TREE FARM
These trees have been one of the most popular Christmas trees over the past last decade. The tree have dark green needles on the surface and a lighter green on the bottom, the needles are usually 1/2 – 1in long. These trees have wonderful needle retention and a nice fragrance. Branches are stronger than other species of firs which is helpful when hanging heavier ordainments. We have a great selection of Fraser’s in the field and pre-cut.
Balsam firs is the traditional soft needle fir most people think about when you think of a Christmas tree. These trees have short and flat needles. These green needles are extremely long lasting and have the longest lasting aroma. Balsam and Fraser firs are very similar species and are the two most popular trees at our Farm.
We like to call them ‘Dougs’ at the farm. These trees are beautiful bushy trees with a longer needle than the balsam and fraser firs. We our family’s come who have a large area to fill with a Christmas Tree usually Douglas firs fit the bill. They have great needle retention however their branches are not as strong as other species. If you are looking at a ‘Doug’ you may want to bring one of your heavier ornaments to ensure this tree will work for you.
Blues’ are beautiful trees with very strong branches. The tree’s needles are short and very strong. As the name of the species implies these trees have blue and green needles. Most people are familiar with Blue Spruces as landscaping trees but they make a great Christmas tree as well. We have families who come year after year to get their Blue Spruce and will not go to another tree.
(Concolor Fir): These trees have longer needles than other firs (similar to the ‘Dougs’) being about ½- 1 ½ in long. They are usually a thinker needle as well. They are known for their amazing aroma which when crushed in your hands has a citrus smell. We have select amount of Concolors but growing more a more each year.
Canaan firs have been a newer addition to our farm. In the past 8 years we have included these trees in our precut and started planting them in the field. Canaan’s have slightly longer needles than Fraser firs but have the color of a balsam. They have become a increasing popular over the years. The needles are soft and branches are strong enough to hold heavier ornaments. They also have great needle retention
This spruce species have short, strong needles with very strong branches. These white spruces use to be the most popular Christmas tree before Fraser and Balsam Firs. These trees can be very full and great for an open space. Since these trees have a lot of needles and mass they take a lot of water. Make sure you don’t allow the water to dry out on these trees. They will take a lot of water in the first week so keep an eye on them. You can find many pinecones in these trees which make for a nice addition.
When we first started 26 years ago these were the tree of choice. These trees have strong branches and long strong needles. These needles can be sharp as well, so when transporting or decorating the tree you may want to wear gloves. Over the years the popularity have decreased for these trees so we have a limited amount of them in the field.
Open for business starting November 22nd!
