If you’re gearing up for the holiday season ahead and you’re thinking about buying the most important element of your Christmas decorating – the tree – you need to come and see our selection of Christmas trees in Dallas, TX at Jackson’s Home & Garden. At Jackson’s, we have a great selection of sizes and styles for you to choose from; but, to make choosing the right tree easier, we think you should know what the U.S. Forest Service says are the most popular varieties of real trees. Once you know the kind of real tree you like, you can quickly choose its artificial counterpart so that you can get the look you want but in a tree that will last for many years.
1. Fraser Fir
The Fraser fir is the perfect tree for holiday decorating because of its dark green, inch-long needles that are soft to the touch. The branches are firm and easy to decorate because of the space between the branches. Fraser firs also tend to have the perfect shape for a Christmas tree, which may be why they are the trees most chosen as the official White House Christmas tree.
The Douglas fir isn’t a true fir tree; it actually has its own unique species classification. One of the main – and most noticeable – differences between true firs and the Douglas fir is that the Douglas fir has downward-hanging cones. These trees naturally grow into a cone shape and have 1 to 1 ½-inch needles that make it easy to decorate.
The Balsam fir has a beautiful, pyramidal shape with short, flat, long-lasting needles. It is dark green in color which makes it a perfect backdrop for all types of ornaments and color schemes.
Colorado Blue Spruce
The blue spruce, like the Douglas fir, has a natural, symmetrical, conical shape that makes it an ideal choice for a Christmas tree. In addition, the foliage of the tree, which ranges from dark green to powdery blue, can look silver from certain angles. The limbs are strong and the needles are 1 to 3 inches long, making it perfect for ornament hanging.
Though the Scotch pine has sharp needles, which doesn’t make it ideal for decorating, it is still one of the most popular trees because of its excellent needle retention. It has stiff branches and two bundled, dark green needles that are 1 to 3 inches long. It also has a nice, pyramidal shape that makes it look full even with a minimal amount of decorations.
