Buying a Christmas tree
Would you like to buy a real Christmas tree that you can keep for longer than just a few weeks around Christmas? There is more choice available than just the sawn off Christmas trees that are offered here and there along the road. You probably know the Nordman fir
with its wide flared branches. With a sawn-off specimen, the stiff, dark green needles stay firmly attached to the tree and remain there for a long time, which is why the Nordman is a popular Christmas tree. But there are more trees available for this purpose. How about the Korean fir
? It can reach a height of 3 to 4 metres (9 to 12 feet) and a width of 2.5 metres (8 feet) . Its real Christmas tree shape and its dark green needles make this Abies Koreana
a very suitable tree to put inside your home at Christmas.Special Christmas trees
Those who want something special can opt for a cedar, such as the Deodar cedar
with spiral-shaped, needle-like leaves. Or the Himalaya cedar
, which has a more yellowish green colour and a decorative shape. You can buy all these Christmas trees in a pot and after Christmas they can be put in the garden, so you can continue to enjoy them after the holidays. Have a look here at all our trees and deciduous trees.
