Fraser Fir make excellent Christmas trees because their strong branches support heavy ornaments. A fresh cut Fraser Fir tree adds a pleasing holiday aroma to a room. They are slow to dry out after cutting and retain needles for a longer period than other types of trees. The short and rigid needles are soft to the touch and are dark green on the top and a silvery white underneath. Fraser Fir must grow ten to twelve years in this region to reach the proper size. Fraser Fir are available pre-cut and displayed on the lot, or can be choosen from the field and cut by the customer.
