The tree for you
1 Nordmann fir:
The most popular variety of cut tree. Its dense, lush needles are slow to drop, though it doesn’t have much scent.
2 Norway spruce:
The traditional tree with narrow branches and needles that are prone to falling. They smell wonderful!
3 Blue spruce:
An elegant tree with attractive blue-grey foliage. The needles are long, and can be sharp, so take care!
4 Fraser fir:
The tree shape is lean, rather than bulky, but the needles are dense and the scent is rich and warm.
5 Douglas fir:
Popular in America, this tree has a lovely lemony scent and soft, dark green or blue-green needles.
The Nordmann fir keeps its needles, but lacks a ‘piney’ scent
The Norway spruce drops needles, but smells wonderful
