Top favourite Christmas tree varieties:-

  • Abies Nordmanniana (Caucasian Fir) an evergreen, densely branched and broadly pyramidal fir; retaining its branches almost to the ground, even in old age. A popular fir chosen as a Christmas tree for its fantastic needle holding ability, especially if kept watered and away from direct sources of heat.  Its tiered branches of soft green foliage are perfect for displaying large and decorative baubles.
  • Picea abies subsp. abies (Norway Spruce) a conical evergreen conifer with sweeping, curved branches that can grow up to 65m. The Norway spruce was introduced into the UK from Scandinavia in the 16th It is familiar to us all as the ‘original’ Christmas tree.
  • Abies procera/ Abies Nobilis (Noble Fir), a western North American fir also known as the red fir or Christmas tree. In the wild the trees are tall, beautifully symmetrical and grow to over 200ft.  Considered to be one of the most handsome trees, with its lovely blue/green foliage and pleasant fragrance, the noble fir has good needle holding properties.  It is often a popular choice because of the open branching and great shape ideal for showing off larger decorations, the stiff branches make it a good tree for heavy ornaments.
  • Abies Fraserii (Fraser Fir) widely regarded as the best Christmas tree species in nature. The Fraser originates from Canada and North America.  It has excellent needle retention with dense blue-green growth and a rich pine scent.  Fraser firs grow tall and slim, so are an excellent choice for narrow spaces.
