Douglas Firs

A soft-needled dense tree, long green needles, excellent needle retention. The Douglas remains one of the most popular holiday trees, fragrant with a typical pyramid shape.

Fraser Firs

Native to the East Coast. A sturdy-branched, short dark green needles with a slivery underside. The ultimate tree for decorating.

Nordmann Firs

Sturdy branches, deep green color, glossy needles, softer foliage & excellent needle retention. It has a slightly open branch structure which will allow for various sized ornament placement.

Turkish Firs

Sturdy branches, deep green color, softer foliage & excellent needle retention. Very similar to the Nordmann Fir, but the needles are slightly shorter with a silvery underside.

Allergies during the holidays

Christmas trees and wreaths. While many people think it’s the tree or other seasonal greens causing their holiday allergies, it’s often actually the dust or mold spores rather than pollen. Before putting out a tree or wreath, you’ll want a hand from someone who does not have allergies to help you out. Give them a good shake and hose them off, then let them dry before setting them up inside. Find out more.

The tree pollens that trigger allergies tend to be very fine and powdery so wind can carry them for miles. Fir trees do NOT have this type of fine pollen and are sometimes even referred to as hypo-allergenic. Find out more.
