Christmas Tree Varieties for Sale from Wagners
Wagners Greenhouse offers the below varieties of local Christmas trees:
Quickly becoming the most popular Christmas tree, the Fraser fir has superior needle retention. With short, soft, rounded needles on strong branches this tree is a delight to decorate and makes a beautiful tree for the entire holiday season. With proper care it will easily last from Thanksgiving to New Years.
This short-needled tree is very fragrant and tends to be more slender than the Fraser. It does not retain it’s needles as well so hold off on putting this one in the house until the second week of December to make it to New Year’s.
The sturdier of the long needled trees, this tree offers good needle retention and strong branches. The needles are about 2 inches long and sharp. Because this tree yellows naturally in the winter, it is generally spray painted a dark green in September or October.
This tree has the second-longest needle after the Norway pine, about 4 inches long. The needles are soft and grow in bunches of five. The soft needles and branches make decorating a challenge, use lightweight decorations.
Caring for your tree is not an incredibly hard task, following these tips to preserve the life of your tree and your home’s holiday spirit!
- Remove the sap seal. Here at Wagners we provide a fresh cut at the time of purchase to remove the sap seal.
- When you get home immediately place your tree into your tree stand or plunge it into a bucket of warm water.
- Use a Christmas tree stand stand that holds at least 1 to 2 gallons of water to avoid dry outs. A thirsty tree can use up to 2 gallons of water per day.
- Don’t let your tree stand dry out. Running short of water will cause a new sap seal to form and block your trees ability to absorb water in the future (causing your tree to die sooner).
- Position your tree away from direct sunlight, heat vents, working fireplaces and TVs.
- Use tree preserve in the water will extend the freshness and the indoor life of your tree.
