  • douglas fir
    Oregon's Traditional Christmas Tree Smaller needles and limbs that can hold medium to small ornaments toward the exterior of each limb. The inner portion of limbs can hold the heavier ornaments. This is the tree that populates Oregon's forests on a grand scale and you may have seen grandma have in her living room. They are traditional, aromatic and beautiful.
  • noble fir
    All-Around Favorite The Noble fir has sturdy fluffy- looking green-blue needles and sturdy limbs able to hold all sizes of ornaments. Noble firs are often trimmed or left more "natural." Natural Noble fir trees will have more "space" in-between the growth of the limbs - referred to by many as being "nordic" or "natural." Properly trimming this tree (cultured) brings the shape to the tree that is popular among many. Nobles are found growing naturally in higher elevations of Oregon's forests and are popular among tree farmers in Oregon - shipped world-wide because they are aromatic, beautiful, durable and, of course - beautiful.

  • grand fir
    The Aromatic Favorite This tree has recently gained increased popularity due to it's intense aroma among our tree hunters. This tree species sports larger, longer and flatter needles than the other trees we have here. It has a noticeable two-tone coloring when you compare the top to the bottom of the needles. The tree has a shorter time from cut time to when it can loose it's needles. We recommend you choose this tree if you set up your tree 1 to 2 weeks before the big day.
  • blue spruce
    A True Blue Tree For some there is no substitute for this blue beauty in their home for the holidays. It 's sturdy and has great longevity in the tree stand after being cut . The needles are silvery blue and very stiff - very sturdy for using heavier ornaments. BUT very "pokie." Be warned you'll need protective gear to handle this type of tree... gloves and thicker clothing to avoid the "ouch" factor. Some pet owners and parents like to use blue spruce as their holiday tree of choice in order to discourage pet and little finger interaction with ornaments and items under the tree.

PAYMENT Bring your tree tag provided by a tree elf inside to pay – we accept cash, check and all types of cards.
  • caring for your tree
    DO water daily with clean fresh water – trees use an average of 1 qt. of water per inch of stem diameter. First week you'll see your tree drink quite a bit of water. Water temperature and additives have not proven any more effective in preserving your tree. DO protect your tree from direct heat sources (fireplaces, heat vents, heaters, & direct sunlight) these will cause them to lose moisture and drop their needles at a much higher rate. DO trim off 1/4" the bottom IF it has been more than 5-7 days since it was harvested. If you place your tree in water within 12 hours of cutting, you do not have to trim off the bottom. DO place in water and keep in a cool place if you are storing your tree for a few days before use. DO run your fingers across the needles to monitor if they are dry and brittle. If the needles break easily or fall off in your hand, the tree is dry and should be remove from the house.
