COOK FIR

Cook fir tree is robust and particularly appreciated for the good smell it releases as well as for its green color, slightly bluish. Cook fir branches, like that of Fraser fir, have a double row of needles.

FRASER FIR

Fraser fir has blue-green needles with silvery undersides. The branches are stiff and hold up well to ornaments. The trees have a pleasant scent and needle retention is excellent.

CONCOLOR

Concolor fir have longer needles that may be as blue as a blue spruce. The big draw for this species, however, is the strong, citrus-like scent of its needles. Concolor also has a reputation for being less allergic than their pinier brethren.

WHITE PINE

White pine is a dense tree with soft, green needles. This tree will require light-weight ornaments.

DOUGLAS FIR

Douglas fir is a dense tree with soft, light green needles. You’ll need to stick with lighter-weight ornaments since the branches are not as stiff as some other species

BLUE SPRUCE

Blue spruce remains a popular Christmas tree because of its bright blue color. Branches are stiff and hold ornaments well. Blue spruce needles are quite sharp, so be sure to wear gloves and long-sleeves when handling. While the needles may make the tree hard to handle, some people choose blue spruce to keep pets away from the tree.

Best needle retention if cut no more than two weeks before Christmas.

TIPS & CARE

DO A FRESHNESS TEST

Gently grasp a branch between your thumb and forefinger and pull it towards you. Very few needles should come off in your hand, if the tree is fresh. Shake or bounce the tree on it’s stump. You should see a very small amount of green needles fall to the ground.

WARNING

Keep the tree stand filled with water. A seal of dried sap will form over the cut stump in 4 – 6 hours if the water level drops below the base of the tree, preventing the tree from absorbing water later when the tree stand is filled. If a sap layer has formed, another fresh cut will need to be made.

WATER

A tree will absorb as much as a gallon of water or more in the first 24 hours and one or more quarts a day thereafter. Water is important because it prevents the needles from drying and dropping off and the boughs from drooping. Water also keeps the tree fragrant.
