The Fraser Fir is the choice for those who have large heavy ornaments. They look like their cousin, the Blue Spruce, but lack the painfully pointy needles. The rounded needles have a blueish green
color to them, making them less traditional than the Douglas Fir.
An "in between" variety, the Concolor is a hybrid evergreen. Native to the Pacific northwest this conifer has long flat needles with moderately thick branches. Protip: break open some fresh
needles for a citrusey smell!
The Douglas Fir is a much more traditional tree in Pennsylvania. It is full, light green, with thin branches. They tend to be a bit more fragrant as well. If you like that traditional tree shape,
the Douglas might be the choice for you.
A new addition to the Philly Christmas Tree Family, the Silver Fir (Abies amabilis) this flat-leaved evergreen coniferous tree is another "in between" variety. It can handle
moderately heavy ornaments. The notable aroma sets the silver fir apart from the others.
