Deciding on the Perfect Christmas Tree for Your Home

Decorating for Christmas is one of the best parts of the season. From the twinkling lights to your favorite holiday movies playing in the background, there is nothing quite like it. But perhaps one of the most important parts of a festive holiday season is choosing the perfect tree – and with so many options out there, it can be hard to decide. That’s why today we’re discussing three of the best trees available at Christmas tree farms in BC: spruce, pine, and blue spruce.
  1. Spruce Trees are an excellent choice for those looking for a traditional evergreen tree that won’t break the bank. Spruces have soft needles, so they’re good for homes with children and pets, and tend to hold ornaments well due to their strong branches. They come in all sizes and shapes, so you can find one that fits perfectly in your home! Plus, they smell amazing!
  1. Pine Trees are a great choice if you want something slightly different from a classic green tree. The needles on pine trees are longer than those on spruces and they also come in various shades of green ranging from light to dark depending on what type you choose. Pines have a lovely scent as well but be warned – their needles do drop more easily than other types so make sure your water reservoir is kept full.
  1. Blue Spruce Trees are perfect if you want a statement piece for your home this holiday season. With their stunning silver-blue needles, these trees will stand out among all others! Not only do they look good but they also smell wonderful – like winter itself! Blue Spruces tend to be more expensive than other varieties but its unique color makes it worth it!
