Types of Trees

The types of trees that we grow and offer at our farm include: Canaan Fir, Colorado Spruce, Norway Spruce, Scotch Pine, and White Pine.

Often times there are differences in opinion as to what makes the most beautiful Christmas tree. After all “Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.” Keeping that in mind, however, there are certain trees that we believe are better suited for cut Christmas Trees, and those that are better suited as landscape trees.

Some important factors to consider when choosing your Christmas Tree include: the strength of the branches, and the needle retention of the tree. The strength of the branch is important to note when considering the amount and weight of your ornaments. The needle retention is important to think about when considering when you put your tree up, as well as the location in your home where the tree will be placed.
