Christmas trees available (updated 12/6/2013)

We have a good selection of Nordmann fir (Abies nordmannia) 4'-16' tall. Nordmann is one of the newer varieties of Abies used as A Christmas tree.  They usually display excellent keeping ability, needle retention and have a very slight fragrance.  If given enough light Nordmann needles can live up to 12 years on the tree.  In Western Oregon, if you place your used Nordmann Christmas tree in a shaded portion of your yard, they will usually keep their needles until the spring sun starts getting fairly warm (about Easter) and the needles will be soft and flexible until that time.

We have a very limited selection of Noble fir (Abies procera) currently 4'-6' and a few 8'-10'.  Noble fir has long been recognized as one of the best Christmas tree species available.  Noble often have a bluish cast to their needles and have a moderate fragrance.  Over a month or 2 they will stop taking up water and their needles will begin to appear dry, usually they will not drop. Noble typically hold up well into mid-January.  Because of the density of the foliage in cultured trees and needles typically living 3-5 years it is strongly recommended that Noble be shaken thoroughly before bringing them in your house to remove old dead needles.

Other Tree Species commonly grown in western Oregon (we currently do not have these available)

Douglas fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii) : A fast growing most economical tree with moderate fragrance.  Best if harvested shortly before Christmas and removed shortly thereafter.  This tree can drop green needles.

Grand Fir (Abies grandis): The most fragrant locally grown Christmas tree with dark green foliage.  Best if harvested shortly before Christmas and removed shortly thereafter.  This tree can be one of the worst droppers of green needles of the common Christmas tree species.  Rumors persist than some seed sources of Grand fir are not prone to needle dropping.
