The Fraser Fir is the standard of comparison for all cut Christmas Trees. It has the most sought-after attributes including sturdy branches, sweet fragrance, and perhaps the best needle retention of all the cut trees. Fraser Fir is also liked for its short and friendly needles with a dark green coloring and silver underside. This tree comes in the widest variety of shapes and sizes – from narrow to fat and from 3 feet tall to 11 feet tall.
