CHOOS­ING YOUR TREE

Devon Life - - Christmas Trees -

Nor­way Spruce: The tra­di­tional Christ­mas tree pop­u­lar since Vic­to­rian times. Dense, spikey nee­dles. Lovely scent. Wa­ter reg­u­larly to pre­vent nee­dle drop.

Nord­mann Fir: Soft, glossy dark nee­dles are more child friendly. Green broad nee­dles. Has very lit­tle nee­dle drop.

No­ble Fir: At­trac­tive sil­very-green nee­dles with strong branches. Ideal for heav­ier dec­o­ra­tions. Good nee­dle re­ten­tion. Lovely aroma. Pro­vides green­ery for the wreaths.

Fraser Fir: The best­selling tree on the farm. Sim­i­lar in shape to the Nor­way spruce, but less nee­dle drop. Good aroma.
