White Spruce

The white spruce is the only Christmas tree native to Ontario and has generally been considered the traditional Christmas tree to many. The foliage is short pointed needles that are green to blue-green and the tree has a sweet evergreen aroma. It takes 8-12 years from seed to harvest with annual trimming required to keep the perfect shape. On the farm we plant 2000 annually as survival rates are very high.

Fraser Fir

An introduced species that is native to the south-eastern United States, foliage is similar to balsam fir except the needles are darker green with silvery lines beneath. This species has a very pleasing appearance as a Christmas tree with excellent needle retention. Some plantations have recently been established in Southern Ontario and these trees grow relatively slowly. 12-14 years is required for a Fraser fir to become a quality Christmas tree.

Colorado Scruce

The Colorado Blue spruce is a truly beautiful tree which is now in greater demand for Christmas. It has adapted well to Ontario's climate, but grows more slowly than the White Spruce. It takes approximately 10-14 years from seed to produce a Christmas tree. Needle colour ranges from dark green to powdery blue with needles that are 1" long and very prickly. Needle retention is better than other spruce and branches are very stiff.

White Pine

The White Pine is an excellent Christmas tree that is a favourite of pine buyers. The long soft needles, in bundles of five, are green in colour. Moderately strong boughs weep gracefully with the weight of ornaments. Years of meticulous shearing create a dense conical tree that stands straight and retains its needles throughout the Christmas season. These trees are relatively fast growing and require 8-10 years from seed.

Balsam Fir

The Balsam fir is a popular tree, with 50% of our customers choosing this species over all others. The Balsam fir regenerates naturally in Nova Scotia and New Brunswick, however; in Ontario seedlings must be purchased and planted. The tops of its needles are dark green and shiny while the underside are a silver-blue colour. The tree has a natural pyramid-like shape with evenly spaced branches. The needles are quite soft and the tree is easy to decorate. The aromatic scent of the Balsam brings natural Christmas wonder into the home.

The red metal bowl holds 32, 8 ounce cups of water for extra large water capacity. The 36" solid maple base will hold trees up to 8 feet.
