Definition of Characteristics

  • Needle Retention - The tree's ability to retain its needles and color throughout the Christmas season.

  • Branch Decorating - Strong and stiff branches hold heavier and/or more ornaments. If you prefer to lightly decorate your tree, a soft branch strength is all that is needed.

  • Aromatic - While all conifers (evergreens) are aromatic, the highly fragrant tend to impact you each time you enter the room, filling your room with the smells of Christmas.

  • Needle Length - Describes the length of the needles on the tree, which varies and gives each tree species its own distinctive look.

  • Color - All conifers (evergreens) are green, however some tend to reflect variations of green and can even be more blue than green, like some of the Colorado Blue Spruce, hence the name.

  • Needle Sharpness - Reflects the comfort and ease of handling and decorating the tree.

  • Natural Pine Cones - Some trees have their own natural ornaments of distinctive pine cones. While many of our tree species have pine cones, they won't reveal themselves until the tree grows beyond 20ft.

  • Price - We offer a unique holiday experience and high quality trees, produced by a top tree grower with over 45 years of experience, making our tree prices highly competitive.
