Christmas Tree Varieties

Our farm’s beautiful fresh Christmas trees are cultured and carefully trimmed to produce full, symmetrical trees. We grow the varieties of trees noted below.

Noble Fir

Noble Fir:
Long considered an excellent Christmas tree because of its beauty, stiff branches and long keep ability. The needles of the Noble Fir sometimes have a blue tint. It is also widely used in the greenery business to make wreaths, door swags, garland and other Christmas products.

In fact, our Noble Fir trees are used to create our lovely fresh Christmas wreaths. The Noble Fir is a very traditional Christmas tree, and is and excellent choice for the early Christmas tree shopper because they hold their needles well.

Fraser Fir

Fraser Fir:
Fraser Fir is a uniformly pyramid-shaped tree. Strong branches are turned slightly upward which gives the tree a compact appearance.

The underside of the needles have a  silver appearance, and the branches are quite stiff which make the Fraser an excellent choice for hanging ornaments.

The Fraser Fir and Noble Fir can have a very similar appearance, and both varieties are able to hold their needles and remain fresh in appearance for a long time.

Grand Fir

Grand Fir:
The Grand Fir produces a beautiful, thick foliage tree when sheared and is known for its strong fragrance. In fact, the Grand fir is the most fragrant of all of the Christmas trees.

It is an excellent choice if you enjoy walking into your home and having the wonderful fresh pine “Christmas” aroma greet you.

The Grand Fir has a cone shaped appearance after sheering, similar to a Douglas Fir, but with much longer, flatter needles with a deep green color.

Douglas Fir

Douglas Fir:
The Douglas Fir has been the major Christmas tree species used in the Pacific Northwest since the 1920’s. The needles are dark green or blue green and soft to the touch and radiate out in all directions from the branch.

The Douglas Fir is the traditional cone shaped Christmas tree that many of us grew up with. Because the Douglas fir is actually not a true fir, they tend to not hold their needles quite as well.

The Douglas fir is an excellent value for the consumer because they don’t take nearly as long to grow to maturity, allowing the farmer to harvest sooner, and therefore they are a less expensive tree to grow and sell.
