🎄 Types of Christmas Trees
Understanding the difference between the types of Christmas trees can help you stay clear of decorating mishaps. Trying to hang your favorite heavy ornaments on a tree that just can’t handle the weight is disappointing. Want a tree with a scent that will last throughout the season? Keep reading!
🌲 Douglas Fir: One of the most popular trees for decorating is the Douglas Fir because it’s easy to find and holds needles well as long as it’s watered properly. If you need branches that can support heavy ornaments, this tree is not the one you should choose.
🌲 Balsam Fir: People love the Balsam Fir because the scent lasts throughout the season and the traditional pyramid shape is symmetrical. Like the Douglas Fir, this tree is not a good choice for heavy ornaments.
🌲 Noble Fir: Another good choice for those who have heavy ornaments to hang is the Noble Fir. This tree is sturdy and will last the entire season without losing its soft needles. The Noble Fir takes a long time to grow, so these can be a bit more costly.
🌲 Scotch Pine: If you want a tree that keeps its scent and needles for a long time, the Scotch Pine is a good choice. The color is not as vibrant as some other trees and trunks can be crooked, but it’s one of the most popular trees of the season.
🌲 Blue Spruce: Need a tree that can handle those heavy ornaments? A Blue Spruce is sturdy and has lovely needles that are silvery-blue in color. It may not be the best option if you have small children around because the needles are sharp.
🌲 White Pine: If you have a problem with strong scents or allergies, the White Pine is an excellent choice because it doesn’t carry a strong pine scent. These trees can be extremely tall and perfect for high ceilings. You need to keep these watered, and they won’t hold heavy ornaments.
🧝 The Tree Elves
Want a fresh Christmas tree but just don’t have the time to go hunting for one? The Tree Elves will pick out a tree, deliver it to your home, set it up, clean up after themselves, and take photos with you (if you want).

🤔 How to Choose a Christmas Tree
⭐ Look for a straight trunk that will fit into your tree stand.
⭐ Check the needle color to make sure there is no browning.
⭐ Trees should smell like they are fresh and be free of musty odors.
⭐ Measure the space you plan to use for your tree and bring a tape measure along.
⭐ Don’t forget to consider the width of the tree when planning.
⭐ The color of the tree should be vibrant and true to the type of tree.
🌱 Sneed’s Nursery
Word on the street is that Sneed’s Nursery trees are so popular that they have to bring in more trees throughout the season to keep up with demand. They have Fraser Firs, Canaan, and Concolor trees. If you’re looking for a White pine or another type of tree, call ahead to make sure they have what you need.
🎁 Holly Berry Christmas Trees
The Holly Berry Christmas Trees are Fraser Fir trees. The trees are pre-cut but we’ve seen wonderful reviews about the quality of the trees and the service provided here. Check their Facebook page for reviews, photos, and videos.
💚 Caring for Your Christmas Tree
💚 Shake tree before bringing into the house.
💚 Keep tree out of direct sunlight and drafts.
💚 Check the water level and water tree regularly.
💚 Don’t place the tree near heat sources.
