Douglas fir are noted for their dense full bushy shape and fine soft green needles. They have a distinctive pine-like scent, and their fragrance usually lasts through the entire Christmas season. Their classic uniform Christmas tree shape is easily decorated and able to support a large number of Christmas tree lights.
These soft, flat needled trees look blue-gray or silver in color and are very striking. They are stately, pyramid shaped evergreens with distinct horizontal branches. Like most firs they are fragrant and have a distintive citrus aroma. Their distintive aroma and unique color make them an ever popular Christmas tree.
This fir has become very popular in recent years and has dark green needles on the top side with silver on the bottom side, 1/2 to 1 inch long and has excellent needle retention along with a nice scent. The Fraser fir was named for Scot botanist John Fraser who explored the southern Appalachians in the late 1700's.
The Canaan closely resembles a Fraser Fir. The needles are short, soft, and rounded with a dark green topside and a silver accent underneath. The Canaan Fir is considered to be one of the best choices for freshness and needle retention.
All the trees at Wine's Christmas Tree Farm are individually shaped and pruned each year with the exception of a few trees that we allow to go unsheared for those patrons who prefer the unsheared look.
