Types of Trees
Fraser firs are native to and commonly found in the Appalachian Mountains along the east coast. They are typically the most preferred tree as they have very soft, short needles and strong branches for holding heavy ornaments. The Fraser firs have the traditional pine scent and bluish green color making them the traditional Christmas tree.
Concolor firs or sometimes referred to as “White Fir” are native to the west coast in the Rocky Mountains. Concolors are known for their pleasant citrus aroma found within their needles. They exhibit a blueish green appearance and are very full trees. Concolors have moderately strong branches, similar to that of the Douglas firs and exhibit good needle retention. Their needles are approximately 1 to 3 inches long in length and are very soft.
