Varieties of trees for sale:
Canaan Fir: This is our best-selling tree. Its needles are short and soft with a dark green color. Density varies from open to dense. Customers report very good needle retention. Sizes vary from 5’-12’+. We have an exceptional selection of 9′-10′ Canaan fir this year and premium 6-7′ trees imported from Michigan to buy us some time for our trees to mature after several years of poor survival. Junes have been consistently too hot over the past few years for our young fir transplants to thrive.
Concolor Fir: Concolors (also called white fir) are the preferred tree of many of our long-time customers. The needles are medium length and have a dark green or blue-green color. Branches tend to be strong and support ornaments well. Needle retention is excellent. We have a much better selection of Concolor this year after several lean years. They are more tolerant of the Nebraska climate than the Canaan, which explains the disparity between the species. Sizes vary from 5’-20’+.
Scotch Pine: Scotch Pines have medium length needles. Most Scotches are very dense and branches are strong. Until a few years ago, this was our most popular tree and it still enjoys a strong following among our customers. Good needle retention. Sizes vary from 4’-9’+. Come early for the taller trees because they tend to sell quickly.
Fraser Fir: Frasers are very popular in the Eastern U.S. due to their medium to dark green needles with silver undersides, strong branch structure and great needle retention. Due to lack of availability from our supplier, we will have a very limited supply of Frasers this year. We are mitigating with the Canaan fir mentioned above. Sizes vary from 6′-12′.
We also have limited quantities of White Pine (long, green needles). Due to deer damage to our trees over the years, the white pine we have available this year were grown by our Michigan supplier so that we have a chance to resupply our own stock.
