Balsam fir: Is my favourite and is considered to be one of the most traditional Christmas trees. Balsam Fir is a short needled tree, very aromatic with a nice tall slender shape. They tend to be quite full and easy to clean up from.

Douglas fir: Is also a nicely shaped and proportioned tree with slightly longer needles than the balsam.

Fraser fir: Very similar in shape to the balsam but with 1/2-inch to 2/3-inch needles that are a beautiful dark green on the top and silvery underneath.

Noble fir: A lovely layered tree that's extremely aromatic, with short, 1-inch needles. The species is native to the West Coast, but is gaining popularity throughout the U.S. It is similar in shape to a Douglas fir but is a deeper, richer green
