Balsam Fir - Needles are soft, short and dark-green to bluish in appearance. Branches are moderately stiff with an attractive arrangement. Needle retention is fair but retains its pleasing fragrance.

Concolor Fir - Long luxurious needle, frosted and often with a bluish cast are the signiture features of this tree. These trees tend to be very full and have a unique citrus aromatic bouquet. Needle retention can be variable so are best taken later than earlier.

Colorado Blue Spruce - is finding increasing popularity as a Christmas tree as a result of its symmetrical form and attractive blue foliage. Short needles circle the entire branch and are very sharp to the touch. Aroma is pungent and branches are very stiff. It is best to setup your Blue Spruce as a cut Christmas tree later in the Season (preferably after Dec. 1st) as needle retention is fair.
