What’s the Best Kind of Christmas Tree? 6 Reasons Why the Fraser Fir Rules Supreme
A Christmas tree is a Christmas tree is a Christmas tree, right? In our humble opinion, no.
There are many choices when it comes to choosing the type of tree you buy as your Christmas centerpiece. And there are benefits and drawbacks to each kind. Some choose by appearance, others by how long it can last and others by price alone.
But if you want our professional opinion, the Fraser Fir Christmas tree is the very best option. And here’s why…
1. Ideal Shape
Have you ever seen how kids draw Christmas trees? Well, the real tree that comes closest to that classic, ideal shape is the Fraser Fir. It has the perfect, full pyramid shape that fills out more as you get closer to the trunk.
Over years of talking to Christmas tree shoppers, we’ve found that most people do want a traditional look that’s right out of the story books. If that sounds like you too, then the Fraser Fir is the best bet.
2. Strong Branches
If you’re like our families, you’ve probably amassed a whole lot of special Christmas tree ornaments over the years. And each one has a special meaning or memory tied to it, so you it’s hard to leave even a single one off the tree.
Sound like your family? Well, then the Fraser Fir is for you. It has very strong branches that won’t bend or break under the weight of your ornament collection. This is also important because then you’re far less likely to find broken ornaments on the floor when a weak branch fails.
3. Spaced Branches
Speaking of ornaments, you probably don’t just want them to be on the tree but to be visible. A Fraser Fir has enough space between each level of branches to provide perfect little windows for your ornaments, big and small. That way, as your loved ones walk around the tree, they get a great view of all the decorations that hold a special place in your family’s history.
4. Soft Needles
Have you ever decorated a Christmas tree whose needles and rigid, sharp and spiky? Putting your hands in to arrange lights or hang ornaments isn’t really a fun and festive chore when it’s physically painful.
With the Fraser Fir, fortunately, that’s never the case. It’s famous for having super soft needles that will never poke you the wrong way as you trim the tree.
5. Less Shedding
Many have come to accept that the price of having a real Christmas tree is needles all over the house. That’s a messy and annoying state of affairs in a time when you’re trying to keep your home as neat and tidy as possible. With the Fraser Fir, however, you’ll experience far less shedding, which means less cleaning up and a longer-lasting tree.
6. Stays Fresh & Fragrant Longer
Depending on when you buy your Christmas tree, you’ll want it to stay fresh and fragrant for a month or more. Considering that this is a tree that’s already been cut from its roots, that can be a big ask. With the Fraser Fir though, that’s not a problem.
From the moment you bring it home, it will fill your home with a piney Christmas tree smell, which can really help you get into the holiday spirit. And, more importantly, the beautiful fragrance and silver-green color sticks around longer than many other tree varieties.
When you purchase a large item that will be the focal centerpiece of your home for several weeks, it’s worth investing in something that will last long and live up to all your expectations.
