Tree Varieties

There are a variety of holiday tree types.  By learning about the types and their differences, you may find what is best for your specific needs.  Of course our friendly staff of "elves", many of whom have worked for us for years, are also available to help with your questions.  Family, tradition and service are what will bring you here once and for years to come. 

Fraser Fir

Its soft, emerald green needles with silvery undersides are about three-quarters of an inch in length.  Its bottlebrush texture, sturdy branching, and outstanding needle retention make it a superb Christmas tree whose popularity has grown rapidly in recent years.

Concolor Fir (White Fir)

Its soft, silvery-blue foliage with flattened needles about two to three inches in length has a distinctive citrus aroma.  Its outstanding color and excellent needle retention make it an increasingly popular Christmas tree. For those with allergies this is a great option for a real tree.

Canaan Fir

Its soft, dark green needles are about one inch in length. It has many similarities to both Fraser & Balsam Fir in growth and appearance. The Canaan is a relative newcomer to the Christmas tree market.

Caring for your Tree

Caring for your real tree is easy...the most important thing to remember is that real trees need water - just like a fresh bouquet of flowers.  If you are not ready to decorate it, keep the tree outdoors, protected from the wind and sun until you are ready to bring the tree into your home. 

Trees are very thirsty.  They will drink between two pints and one gallon of water per day.  Use a water-bearing stand with a water capacity of one gallon or more if possible.  Check the stand daily and supply fresh water as needed. 

And remember, another approach is to have a potted tree.  This can be bought from us year-round and then decorated or transplanted after the holidays.  Whether you want one or ten, Moore Tree Farm is the place to go!
