WHAT KIND OF TREE DO I WANT?


Douglas Fir

Why popular: lasts longer and looks better and holds heavier ornaments.
Color: light to medium green
Needles: excellent retention. 1-1-1/2 inch long, soft to touch, very green
Scent: excellent, pine
Typical shape: wider at bottom, more full throughout

Not a true fir but actually has its own unique classification. Unlike true firs the cones on Douglas fir hang downward. Douglas fir grows cone-shaped naturally, has 1 to 1-1/2 inch needles that are persistant and has a sweet scent when crushed. The Doug fir tree is shipped to and found in nearly every tree lot in the Unites States. The tree was named after David Douglas who studied the tree in the 1800's.



Fraser Fir

Why popular: lasts longer and looks better and holds heavier ornaments.
Color: dark blue-green
Needles: excellent retention. 1/2-1 inch long, soft to touch, dark green on top and silvery white on bottom
Scent: excellent, pine
Typical shape: tall, narrower at bottom, more pocketed for ornaments placed into the tree

A native southern fir and very similar to Balsam fir. Some say it is a southern extension of the Balsam fir species and naturally grows at elevations above 5,000 feet. This fir has dark green needles, 1/2 to 1 inch long and ships well. The tree has excellent needle retention along with a nice scent. Fraser fir was named for Scot botanist John Fraser who explored the southern Appalachians in the late 1700's.
