The Fraser Fir is best known for its durability, pleasant colours and fragrance. It has flattened needles that are soft to touch, stiff branches to hold up the heaviest of decorations and a pyramidal shape that keeps the appearance intact. Though its branches are pretty compact, it is the most popular Christmas tree that can sustain heavier ornaments, Christmas garlands and even huge yuletide wreaths. The tree has the ability to grow up to 55ft.

Boasting shiny and durable green/blue-green coloured needles that look fascinating and give out a sweet scent, the Douglas fir is everyone’s favourite Christmas tree. Given its perfect pyramid shape and nice & full branches, it’s a much-loved Christmas tree to deck the hall (and one of the easiest finds). Its bushy, strong and fragrant leaves will leave your house smelling like the holidays. Don’t forget to water it time-to-time otherwise, it will drop its needles.

Pro Tip: Check for your space to know the perfect size of the tree to buy. Avoid warm places such as near a heater or a fireplace to save your trees from drying out fast due to heat.

Scotch Pine or Scots Pine is the most loved pine Christmas tree that requires minimal to no maintenance. The conical shape, piney scent, and wonderful needle holding ability make it a popular cut tree for the holidays and people with a black thumb. Therefore, even if the tree gets dry, the green, sturdy needles stay unscathed. Its robust branches can withstand even the heaviest of ornaments. Besides being one of the most popular Christmas tree choices to deck the hall, this evergreen tree is hardy and can adapt to almost all climatic conditions.

The strong and long-hanging branches can be adorned well with Christmas ornaments and lights.
