Choosing the tree type. Do you prefer a noble or a Douglas fir? Are you looking for a deep, dark green or a cool, grayish blue? There are many popular tree varieties available for Christmas trees. Check out Art Knapp Garden Centre for more information before you search for your ideal Christmas tree. The most common types of Christmas tree in the U.S. are Douglas fir, scotch pine, noble fir, grand fir, Fraser fir, balsam fir, white spruce and white pine.
However, many other types of Christmas trees exist and availability depends upon your region. When you pick out your tree, explore the options available and consider your tree decorations, tree lights, and the room where you keep your tree. For example, if you plan to adorn the Christmas tree with lots of draping garlands or big ornaments that require room to hang, then a noble fir would probably be a better choice than a Douglas.
