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’-11’. We have an great selection of 7-8′ Canaan fir this year and a limited supply of larger ones. Junes have been consistently too hot over the past few years for our young fir transplants to thrive, requiring us to interplant fields over several years. The unfortunate result is a wide disparity in the size of trees (with a limited number of large trees) in one of our fields we have marked for sale this year

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. For the second year in a row we have a nice selection of Concolor Fir.

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. Frasers are difficult to grow in Nebraska, so we supplement with pre-cuts from Michigan. Customers report that they hold up well despite not being cut fresh from our farm.

We also have limited quantities of White Pine (long, green needles), Korean Fir (short, flashy needles) and Douglas Fir (short, green needles).
