Fraser fir continues to increase in popularity for good reason. Fraser fir has blue-green needles with silvery undersides. The branches are stiff and hold up well to ornaments. The trees have a pleasant scent and needle retention is excellent. We grow ours here in Pennsylvania.
Douglas-fir is a dense tree with soft, light green needles and a very pleasant Christmas tree aroma. The branches are not as stiff as some other species. We grow them here in Pennsylvania for exceptional needle retention.
