The Grand Fir is easily distinguished from other firs by its sprays of lustrous needles in two distinct rows. They are usually horizontally spread so that both the upper and lower sides of the branches are clearly visible. The needles are 1 to 1 1/2 inches long with glossy dark green tops and two highly visible white lines of stomata on the undersides. Best part of this tree, a neatly trimmed appearance as if it has been combed. Need lighter ornaments on this one.

These needles turn upward, exposing the lower branches. Known for its thick and full beauty, this tree looks great undecorated too! The Noble Fir has a long keep ability. It has a distinctive layered look and a deep green appearance and is by far our best seller! One of the finest of  Christmas Trees!

The Nordman Fir has excellent needle retention and is not as fragrant as som firs, which can be a plus with those with allergies.  They can take as long as 10 years to grow. A gorgeous tree!

Approximately 1 inch in length, the needles on this tree don’t even fall when they’re dry, However, they can get dry. Widely and quickly grown, they are the most inexpensive tree to purchase and stand up to heavy ornaments with their stiff branches. Only real down side..sharp prickly needles compared to other varieties and because of its naturally yellowing appearance in fall are usually sprayed green before the Christmas Season.  If your a "feeler"  you might prefer a  different tree. 

The White Pine has long, soft, flexible needles and is bluish-green in color. Its soft, feathery needles are 3 - 5 inches long, giving this tree a furry appearance making it  fun to pet. White Pine’s have decent needle retention, but have little aroma and are economically priced because of their faster growth during production. They aren’t usually recommended for those with alot of ornaments because the only place to hang them is off its main branches.
