The Christmas tree is arguably the center point of all holiday celebrations. Most people ponder over the important decision of what Christmas tree will look perfect in their living room. If you are looking for the most perfectly shaped, fullest, beautiful tree you can find, check out our guide on choosing the best tree for your home.
Fraser Fir: Its attractive silvery-green needs are beautifully colored and soft to the touch. Because of the small amount of space between the branches, the Fraser is easier to decorate than most trees and the firm branches hold heavier ornaments. As long as you keep it properly watered, the Fraser Fir has great need retention.
Noble Fir: The Noble Fir is a cool blue-green color with unusually shaped branches. Its branches are sturdy, yet the needles are not to sharp which can be easily decorated. Like the Fraser, the Noble has good spacing between so it is easy to hang ornaments.
Douglas Fir: The Douglas Fir comes with soft dark green needs and a pyramidal shape. It is a dependable, long-lived tree (with proper watering). It can flourish in humid climates with dry summers.
Scotch Pine: You will want to wear gloves when decorating a Scotch Pine, since its needles are very sharp. The National Christmas Tree Association notes the Scotch Pine as being excellent for need retention and keepability. It is also easy to grow because it can adapt to a wide range of climates and soils.
Eastern White Pine: Branches from the White Pine are used in garlands and wreaths due to their long, feathery needles. Though it is a beautiful tree, branches can be flexible to support heavier decorations. The soft green color needs and rich fragrances make this a perfectly adaptable tree.
Colorado Blue Spruce: The Colorado Spruce is known for its pyramidal shape, strong limbs and blue foliage which can appear silvery. If your decorating scheme includes a blueish tint, this tree will fit right in with your home.
No matter which tree you prefer, it all comes down to your personal preference. Only you know what type of decorating you want to do to your tree and the space you have in your home. Regardless, any of these trees will look beautiful this Christmas season.
