for use as a Christmas tree. Balsam trees have the scent that make most people think of Christmas trees!
This fir is sometimes described as an intermediate species between Balsam and Fraser Firs and has many of the characteristics of both.

Very soft and fragrant and good needle retention.
Colorado Blue Spruce:
Classic pyramid shape and very strong branches to support heavy ornaments and good needle retention make this tree a popular choice for many.

Close relative of the Balsam, Frasers are medium to dark green with a silvery underside to the needles. The needles are rounded, soft and very fragrant. The fact that this tree is normally a little narrower than many species and has extra-ordinary needle retention makes this tree a favorite.

Norway Spruce (Red Fir)
A tree of European descent, sometimes known as "red fir" because of the color of the reddish bark on a mature tree. It has an excellent dark green color and pleasing full shape. Fair needle retention, not a lot of smell.
Black Hills Spruce: Known for it's short, stiff bright blue-green needles. Darker and denser than a white spruce, slow growing and compact shape.
