Named for John Fraser (1750-1811), a Scottish botanist who explored the southern Appalachian Mountains in the late 18th century, the Fraser Fir is a beautiful fragrant tree with great needle retention. It is by far one of the most popular species of Christmas tree due to its form, dark blue-green color, pleasant scent, and excellent shipping characteristics.

Fraser fir is a uniformly pyramid-shaped tree with strong branches that are turned slightly upward which gives the tree a compact appearance.

Nationally the Douglas Fir remains as one of the most popular wholesale Christmas trees species being sold today. The needles are dark green or blue green, 1 to 1 1/2 inches long, soft to the touch and radiate out in all directions from the branch. Douglas fir are liked for their dense bushy shape and fine soft needles which require little maintenance and have good retention.

Plantation trees are normally sheared and will produce a crop within 7 to over 10 years depending upon the site and growing area.

With its attractive blue foliage and symmetrical pyramid shape the Blue spruce is another popular variety of Wholesale Christmas tree we offer. Needles are generally bluish-gray to silvery blue but some trees have a more distinct bluish-white or silvery-white foliage. This tree has extremely sturdy branches and its needle retention is among the best of the spuces.

Like the Black Hills variety it is another slow grower requiring 8 to 11 years to reach a marketable 6-7 foot tree.

The long, soft needles of the White pine give it a pristine full look. For Christmas trees, sheared trees are preferred, although some people feel shearing results in trees too dense for larger ornaments. Needle retention is good to excellent. White pine has very little aroma, but, conversely, is reported to result in fewer allergic reactions than do some of the more aromatic species.

To produce a 6-foot tree requires 6-8 years on good sites.
