Types Of Christmas Trees

See our selection of Types Of Christmas Trees.

The following types of Christmas trees are the most popular in the United States. They are real trees grown on tree farms and sold to families nationwide, from Hawaii to Alaska! Browse through these types of Christmas trees. Your personal preference will largely depend on where you live, what shade of green you want, and how thickly you want the branches to be spread.

1. Fraser Fir
Has dark green needles, ½ to 1 inch long. Excellent needle retention. Good pine scent.

2. Douglas Fir
Not a true fir, but has its own classification. The cones hang downward, and the tree itself grows cone-shaped.

3. Balsam Fir
Pyramidal tree with short, flat, long-lasting, aromatic needles. Dark green color.

4. Colorado Blue Spruce
Ornamental landscape tree. Dark green to powdery blue needles, 1 to 3 inches long. Often sold living, with an entire root ball, to be planted after the holidays. Chosen in 1978 as the official living White House Lawn Christmas tree.

5. Scotch Pine
A true pine. Imported from Europe and not native to America. First used in reforestation efforts. Stiff branches, two bundled dark green needles 1 to 3 inches long, which are retained for four weeks.

6. Eastern Red Cedar
A traditional Christmas tree of the south. Aromatic needles that are dark, shiny, green color—sharp and prickly to the touch.

7. White Spruce
A regional favorite of the northeast U.S. and Canada. Green to bluish green needles. The crushed needles give an unpleasant odor. Poor needle retention. But great for heavy ornaments.

8. Eastern White Pine
Grown mostly in the mid-Atlantic states for commercial Christmas trees. Retains needles throughout the holiday season, but has next to no fragrance and doesn’t hold heavy ornaments well. Good for people who have allergies to more fragrant trees.

9. White Fur or Concolor Fir
One of the longest-needled firs.

10. Virginia Pine
Only recently has been used as a Christmas tree. Tolerates warmer temperatures. Has to be mechanically formed into shape. Dark green to gray in color. Stout limbs with woody branches.
