The Deodar Cedar grows like a fir with layered branches and short needles. Demand is higher for it as a ball and burlap ornamental.
The Virginia Pine was the staple of the Southern Christmas tree industry for over 30 years. It is still popular because of its strong branches and good needle retention. The Virginia Pine has an amazing pine scent and is an excellent choice for any family Christmas!
The White Pine has softer, longer needles than Virginia pine. It is a beautiful full tree with soft limbs. It’s not the best for heavy ornaments but very beautiful when decorated. It has green foliage with just a touch of blue, good needle retention and and wonderful pine scent.
The Carolina Sapphire looks like a Cedar tree but is bluer and gentle to the touch. It has a great aroma. Its’ very important to keep water to it and is best cut later in the season, but some buy it Thanksgiving weekend with success.
Eastern Red Cedar
The Eastern Red Cedar is the traditional Southern Christmas tree. It has an amazing scent. Its foliage can be prickly to the touch. The needle retention is moderate, and its best when cut later in the season.
The Leyland Cypress is the longest lasting Christmas tree. If kept in water, Leyland Cypress will last a couple of months with virtually no shedding. A full, eight foot Leyland can drink up to two gallons of water per day for the first several days after being cut. It has a beautiful green color. The limbs are too soft for heavy ornaments, but it has unsurpassed needle retention.
The Frazier Fir has strong branches and is the most popular tree in the East. They have an amazing aroma that exudes the Christmas spirit. The branches are nicely layered, perfect for ornament placements The Frazier Fir has great needle retention but some shedding is to be expected.
