About Maine Christmas Trees

First, a note about different kinds of trees you may encounter on your trip:

  • Fraser Fir: A regal, richly fragrant native tree, it has bicolor needles — deep green on top, silvery white below. It’s generally slender profile suits small rooms. Stiff branches hold ornaments well. The combination of form, needle retention, dark blue-green color and pleasant scent have made this tree very popular.
  • Balsam Fir: A fragrant balsam scent, and known as the traditional Christmas Tree. It has excellent form and that great pine tree smell.
  • Balsam/Fraser Hybrid: This tree combines the qualities of both the Balsam Fir and Fraser Fir, producing a beautifully shaped tree, excellent needle retention and the fragrance of the Balsam Fir.
  • Canaan Fir: Very similar to a Balsam/Fraser hybrid.
