Fraser fir Christmas Tree
This year we’ve selected Fraser fir Christmas trees from 3 different farms, located in Mission BC, Langley BC and Alliston, Ontario. Fraser fir have medium green, mildly fragrant needles and a somewhat narrow form, making them a good choice where space is limited. Needle retention is very good – almost as good as a Noble fir. Branches are strong and will hold heavy decorations without sagging.
Noble Fir Christmas Tree
Our Noble fir Christmas trees are grown on 2 different family-owned tree farms located in the in the foothills of the Cascade Mountain range in Oregon, with a small quantity also from a farm in Mission, BC. Trees are broadly tapered from bottom to top, with deep green to blue-green needles and a moderate fragrance. Noble fir have space between branches, but still maintain a full, layered appearance. The space between the branches leaves room for decorations to hang naturally, and strong branches hold heavy ornaments without sagging. Needle retention on Noble fir is superior to most other Christmas tree varieties. A Noble fir can hold its branches for more than 4 weeks if placed in a stand with Keeps-it-Green tree preservative and water that is topped up daily.
Nordmann Fir Christmas Tree
Our Nordmann fir Christmas trees are grown on a family-owned tree farms located in the foothills of the Cascade Mountain range in Oregon, with just a few coming from Mission, BC. Nordmann fir are ”true firs” native to the Republic of Georgia and northern Turkey. They feature beautiful soft shiny needles with a deep green colour, and have evenly spaced strong branches perfect for heavy ornaments. Needle retention on Nordmann Fir is superior to most other Christmas tree varieties. A Nordmann fir can hold its needles for more than 4 weeks if placed in a stand with water that is topped up daily.
Natural Douglas Fir Christmas Tree
Our Natural Douglas Fir Christmas trees are grown in the East Kootenay region of British Columbia. These trees are normally produced using a technique known as “stump culture”. A tree is cut leaving the bottom 2 or 3 branches near the ground. A shoot may grow from near the cut or the uppermost of these remaining branches may turn up to form a new tree top, which can then be harvested, in about 7 – 10 years. This type of culture has been practiced in BC for 40 to 50 years and is a sustainable Christmas tree production system.
A natural Douglas fir is broadly tapered, with lots of space between the branches. Each tree has its own unique character. Once brought indoors, natural Douglas fir will hold most of their needles for a maximum of 2 – 3 weeks, if they are placed in a stand with fresh water and Keeps It Green tree preservative, topped up daily. All Douglas fir have very fragrant needles. Natural Douglas fir are considered the “vintage” tree choice, and are sometimes affectionately referred to as the “Charlie Brown” tree!
Cultured Douglas Fir Christmas Tree
Our Cultured Douglas fir Christmas trees are grown on family-owned tree farms in Mission and in Silverton, Oregon. Trees feature a full, dense canopy of rich green to blue-green, fragrant needles and a symmetrical, tapered shape. Needle retention is a better than with a natural Douglas fir, as trees are not subject to the same level of stress during the growing season. Needles hold very well for up to 3 weeks or more if provided with tree preservative and water, topped up daily. Cultured Douglas fir are full and bushy and display a handsome Christmas tree silhouette.
