Christmas tree types at Evergreen Farms Christmas Trees:
The Fraser Fir is a tree species that can not grow in Texas, yet many Evergreen Farms customers enjoy the fir. Fraser firs are shipped in from North Carolina in refrigerated trucks and stored in water or watered everyday to provide a fresh tree.
The Leyland Cypress is a sterile hybrid tree between the Monterey cypress (Cupressus macrocarpa) and Alaskan cedar (Chamaecyparis nootkatensis). Because the tree is a sterile hybrid, it does NOT pollinate naturally, and therefore is an excellent option for those that have tree allergies. Customers like it because it is not only a very beautiful Christmas tree, but if kept in water, it will outlast any other tree without leaving needles in the carpet.
Virginia Pine (Pinus Virginianan) is a short-needled pine with pleasant pine fragrance, dense foliage and good growth rates. It has been by far the most widely planted southern Christmas tree over the past three decades and still is the most common species at most farms in the South.
