Fraser Fir Christmas Trees are often referred to as the “Rolls Royce of Christmas trees’. Fraser firs are famous for their two tone needles. Each needle has a dark green top with a silver underside. With a stiff branch, soft needles, and pleasant aroma Fraser Firs are a treat to decorate. Our farms are located in the beautiful Blue Ridge mountains of North Carolina and western part of Virginia. We have been in operation since 1990, providing top quality Fraser Fir Christmas trees. We have proudly grown into one of the largest shippers and suppliers of Christmas trees and Christmas greens in the U.S.
At this time we farm an approximate of 6000 acres of Christmas Trees.
Grown in the mountains of NC and VA and native Blue Ridge Region the Fraser Fir grows best over 3,000 feet in elevation. With a perfect Christmas tree shape and fragrant dark green needles that have a long retention time, the Fraser Fir is an excellent and highly sought after Christmas tree. The Fraser is named after John Fraser, the Scottish botanist and explorer who discovered it in the late 18th century.
1,200,000 Fraser Fir Trees were planted in the spring of 2016 to keep up with the growing demand for this choice Christmas tree!
The trees are cut after a couple of frosts; this “sets the needles”. Storing the trees in cool, dark and humid coolers keeps the tree fresh and long lasting for the consumer.
The desired height, climate and Mother Nature all come into play, but the general rule is 6-8 years for a 7’ tree once it is planted as a sapling. It takes 4 years from seed to a transplantable sapling. Total years for this process are up to 12, from seed to adorned and decorated in your families’ living room.
