Fraser Fir Front

Fraser Fir

The Fraser fir is native to the Appalachian Mountain region. This short-needled tree has a pleasant fragrance but not as intense as the Balsam fir. Strong branches with a silvery underside, along with excellent needle retention, have made this Christmas tree a top-seller in the market.

Balsam Front

Balsam Fir

The balsam fir is a native of Wisconsin. It is considered a short-needled tree with superb fragrance. The aroma from the Balsam fir that fills your home throughout the holiday season is one of the main selling points of the tree. If kept well-watered, needle retention is excellent. Although the needle retention is excellent, the needles tend to break easily when transporting the tree from our tree lot in Madison or during the set-up of your tree.

Scotch Pine Front

Scotch Pine

The Scotch pine was imported originally from Europe. It is considered a long-needled tree with needles up to three inches long. There is little fragrance associated with the Scotch pine. It has stronger branches than the White pine which allows it to support larger ornaments.

White Pine Front

White Pine

The White pine is also native to Wisconsin and is considered a long-needled tree with soft needles as long as five inches. This tree offers a slight yet pleasant fragrance. Small ornaments, lights and garland are the preferred decorations for this tree, as the branches are very flexible and do not easily withstand heavy ornaments.
