Douglas Fir

These are compact, full trees, and have the shape of what many think of as the typical Christmas tree. They are one of the more fragrant trees which can accentuate the season by filling a room with the pleasant odor Christmas. The needles are soft, as are the branches which may sag under the weight of heavy ornaments. Trees 3-12 feet tall.

Norway Spruce

These also have a full appearance. The odor is not quite so strong as the Douglas Fir, but the branches are a little stronger. Along with stronger branches come slightly sharper needles. All in all, this is our most popular tree, and they are plentiful this year. Trees 4-12 feet tall.

Blue Spruce

A tree which typically has a more open growth structure allowing ornaments to be hung on the outer and inner branches. The branches are quite strong for heavy ornaments, but the needles are very stiff and sharp. Many people use the sharp needles as a defense against small children and pets. Trees 4-9 feet tall.
