Six varieties of fir, including a limited amount of Burton Blue Noble fir, a special tree grafted for exceptional color and overall quality.
The majority of our trees are Noble fir, but we have excellent smaller portions of Fraser, Grand, Nordmann, and Douglas fir. We always try to add a small percentage of the elegant Burton Blue Noble in a regular order of Noble fir at no additional charge.
And we love producing the finest quality of fresh Christmas trees…trees that will find their way to many, many happy homes during the Christmas season. Give us a try.
