Need we mention our handmade fresh wreaths, garland and incredible “nursery” quality poinsettias? We invite you to discover the difference in McShane’s. Here are some of the difrent types of Christmas Trees we have here at McShane’s.
Douglas Fir: This tree is without question the “value” priced tree for the fresh market making it one of the top Christmas Tree Species in production. Needles are one to two inches in length and are green to dark green. The needles have one of the best aromas among Christmas trees when crushed. Douglas fir needles radiate in all directions from the branch. The needles are thin and the tree is known for drying out quickly if not given adequate water.
Fraser Fir: Fraser fir trees are one of the most popular Christmas Trees in the deep south. The needles are flat and one half to one inch in length. The tree is sometimes called “designer” due to its two-tone needles that are dark green on top and silvery underneath. Needle retention is good making it easy to keep clean. The Fraser has a nice sent and features pyramid-shaped strong branches which turn upward.
Grand Fir: The Grand Fir is certainly an exotic tree amount Central Coast Tree Lots. The tree is well known for its amazing “citrus like” scent that is strong. The needles are dark green and one to one and a half inches in length. Similar to the Fraser Fir, they are two tone with silver undersides. The needles are flat and as a result can dry out easier than a Fraser, Noble or Nordman. As a result, adequate water is a must.
Noble Fir: The Noble Fir is the one of the best trees on the market. It is aromatic, has great shape and excellent needle retention. Due to extensive breeding, needle colors can vary greatly from gray and blue to green and dark green. The short, stiff branches are great for heavier ornaments. These needles turn upward, exposing the lower branches. The tree is native to the West Coast and is being seen more and more in living rooms.
Nordman Fir: The Nordman Fir is without a doubt the “Cadillac” of Christmas Trees. Similar to the Noble it is aromatic and has excellent needle retention. The needles are what make the tree so incredible. Like the Fraser, they are two tone and have a soft, glossy texture. It is one of the most popular Christmas Trees in Great Britain.
