Christmas Tree Varieties
At Fernridge Christmas Tree Farm we currently grow 3 different types of Christmas trees for your choosing. Each variety of Christmas tree has its own unique look and characteristics.
Douglas Fir “BC’s Classic Christmas Tree”
Grand Fir “The Best Smelling Christmas Tree”
Fraser Fir “The Longest Lasting Christmas Tree”
Noble Fir “The Traditional Looking Christmas Tree” Available as a Fresh Cut Tree
Grand Fir is known for its amazing aromatic qualities that really smells like “Christmas”. The Grand Fir has glossy dark green flat shaped needles with a white colored underside. Grand Fir often has a bushy appearance, with finer branches and usually a thick strong top.
Douglas Fir has been a classic choice for a Christmas Tree in BC for many years due to its pyramidal shape, medium green soft needles and sweet smelling scent. This variety is faster growing than other varieties grown at Fernridge as well as being the variety of which we grow the most of.
Fraser Fir is known for its ability to hold onto its needles the longest. Fraser Fir has a classic European look to the tree because of its sturdy branches, short needles and open spaces between branches. Fraser Fir needles have a green blue color and a mild fragrance usually
with a thick strong top.
Noble Fir is known for its flat strong branches and upright blue green colored needles that give it a much sought after regal appearance. Noble Fir have spaces between their flat branches that some say are the perfect size for hanging ornaments. Noble Fir are slow growing and have a mild fragrance with needle retention almost as long as the Fraser Fir.
