Fresh Cut Tree Varieties

We sell 2 varieties of fresh cut Christmas trees:

Fraser Fir is the most popular variety, known for its excellent needle retention, strong branches and good fragrance. If you have large or heavy ornaments, this tree would be a great choice for you.

Balsam Firs are known for their strong fragrance, deep green color and softer needle. This is a very dense tree – exactly what you would expect a traditional Christmas tree to look like.

The trees we buy are grown to be Christmas Trees. They are not harvested from the forest.

Fresh Cut Tree Care

1. Make a fresh cut

We'll take care of this step for you! This re-opens the tree stem so it can drink water

2. Tree Removal Bag

Place a tree removal bag underneath the tree stand to protect floors and carpets from moisture and to aid with tree removal later.

3. Tree Preservative

Use Tree Preservative when watering to keep your tree fresher longer. 

4. Water Daily

A tree will absorb as much as a gallon of water or more in the first 24 hours and one or more quarts a day thereafter. Water is important because it prevents the needles from drying and dropping off.  Water also keeps the tree fragrant.

5. Check Water Daily

Keep your tree stand filled with water. A seal of dried sap will form over the cut stump in 4-6 hours if the water drops below the base of the tree, preventing the tree from absorbing water again.  If a seal does form, another fresh cut will need to be made.

6. Keep Away From Heat Sources

Keep your tree away from heat and drafts such as fireplaces, radiators and television sets.
