Christmas Tree Varieties

Douglas Fir Tree

These soft needles are dark green-blue green in color and are approximately 1 – 1 ½ inches in length. The Douglas Fir needles radiate in all directions from the branch. When crushed, these needles have a sweet fragrance. They are one of the top major Christmas tree species in the U.S. Good needle retention, and economically priced.

Noble Fir Tree

These needles turn upward, exposing the lower branches. Known for its thick and full beauty, this tree looks great undecorated too! The Noble Fir has a long keep ability. It has a distinctive layered look and a deep green appearance and is by far our best seller! The Cadilac Of Christmas Trees! Priced Right at Holly Acres. (we have growing partners on this one!) Inner brown needles from the tree's annual shed will be heavy on this tree, do not be concerned with this, just clean the tree up before bringing indoors. (a good shaking usually does the trick) This is because, like a dog with very thick hair-there's more fluff to get rid of in fall. But also accounts for its rich beauty!

Grand Fir Tree

The Grand Fir is easily distinguished from other firs by its sprays of lustrous needles in two distinct rows. They are usually horizontally spread so that both the upper and lower sides of the branches are clearly visible. The needles are 1 to 1 1/2 inches long with glossy dark green tops and two highly visible white lines of stomata on the undersides. Best part of this tree, a neatly trimmed appearance as if it has been combed.

Frazier Fir Tree

Frazier Fir Christmas Tree has 3/4" long needles with a silverish, green top side with a silver bottom. It is the most popular of all Christmas Trees @ this time. The perfect tree for the Holidays, this Frazier Fir will be around for you quite a while without dropping many of it's needles. Also, the fragrance of these trees are astounding - there's no better way to announce the Holidays! Perfect for everyone and considered the longest lasting of all Christmas Trees! Recommended when looking for a tree thats tall and narrow, although not all are narrow.

 Holds needles the longest of all the trees & is not prickly, . 

Nordman Fir Tree


Nordman Fir Christmas trees have dark green glossy needles and dense foliage. They are  native to Northern Turkey and the Republic of Georgia and can withstand temperatures as low as 40 degrees C. The Nordman Fir has excellent needle retention qualities. These trees can be compared to the Grand Fir but are not quite as symmetrical and tend to have a little more character. They can take as long as 10 years to grow. A gorgeous tree!

White Pine


The White Pine has long, soft, flexible needles and is bluish-green in color. Needles are 2 ½ - 5 inches, giving this tree a feathery appearance. "The Mink" of Christmas Trees, White Pine’s have good needle retention, but have little aroma and are economically priced because of their faster growth during production. They aren’t usually recommended for heavy ornaments.

Concolor Fir


Concolor Fir These flat and long, greyish needles are around 1 – 1 ½ inches in length and occur in rows. They have a bluish color, good needle retention, and a pleasing shape and aroma. Sturdy branches insist on larger ornaments. A gorgeous tree grown here in Colorado. Trees over 9ft tend to be very wide.

Limited quantities.


Balsam Fir


Balsam Fir-These needles are ¾ - 1 ½ inches in length and last a very, very long time. This tree has an olive green appearance. Well known for its pleasing fragrance and more "natural appearance" with that space between the branches for those hand made ornaments. This tree is , YES, where Balsam Shampoos and Conditioners get their fragrance and wax. Expect a less "trimmed" appearance, but uniform shape.

Caanan Fir


Canaan (pronounced “Ka-naan”, with emphasis on the last syllable) is a relative newcomer to the Christmas tree market. It has many similarities to both Fraser and Balsam Firs in growth and appearance. It has a dark-green color and is very durable. Superb needle retention, excellent fragrance, natural appearance like Balsam, but coloring of Fraser and slightly more economical. A great selection.

Scotch Pine

Scotch Pine

Approximately 1 inch in length, these needles don’t even fall when they’re dry, However, they can get dry. Widely and quickly grown, they are the most inexpensive tree to purchace and stand up to heavy ornaments with their stiff branches. The color is a bright green. Only real down prickely needles compared to other firs and pines and because of its naturally yellowing appearance in fall are usually sprayed green before the Christmas Season.
