It’s after Halloween so for some people that means it’s time to start thinking about their holiday decorations. The Christmas tree is an essential part of the holidays. When given the proper care, a live tree can last about six weeks, so you need to plan accordingly. Don’t get a tree too early in November if you want it to last until December 25 or even to New Years Day. Not sure which tree is right for your home? Here’s a list to help you decide.

Fraser Fir Christmas Trees

“It has a traditional tree shape and color that you picture when you think of Christmas.”

Fraser Fir: This fir tree might be considered the “perfect” tree for the holidays. It has a traditional tree shape and color that you picture when you think of Christmas. The branches are spaced out enough to handle all of the ornaments and the branches are strong enough to hold those precious heavy ornaments. Another plus is that the needles won’t litter the ground as much as other trees might.

Colorado Blue Spruce: If you want a less traditional tree the Colorado Blue Spruce is the perfect alternative. It has a natural blue almost silver hue to the needles. This is great for decorating schemes that are silver, blue, purple, darker blue, etc.
