Fraser Fir trees are considered the Cadillac of Christmas Trees. So when we sell “Premium Fresh-Cut Trees,” we really mean PREMIUM. Fraser Firs grow only in high elevation climates, and we get all our trees from the Appalachian mountains of North Carolina – specifically from Sparta and Laurel Springs.
The qualities that make Fraser Firs a superior Christmas tree are:
1. Strong evergreen aroma
2. Firm branches able to hold the weight of many ornaments
3. Strong needle retention
4. Rich colors of platinum silver and deep hues of blue-ish green
The qualities that make our trees PREMIUM grade are:
1. Branches are trimmed and pruned all around the tree throughout its growth for a more symmetric shape.
2. Trees selected for premium grade have branches that are full, thick, and dense – no scraggly trees!
