The Nordmann Fir is considered to be the most popular choice, due to its minimal needle drop and evenly spread branches. Ideal for indoors, the Nordmann Fir is often a full, dense tree with soft needles making decorating very easy. The Nordmann holds a traditional triangular shape with a vibrant dark green colour to its needles. The stems tend to be straight and based in the centre of the tree, providing you with the perfect place for your tree topper.
The Fraser Fir tree is a great, slender alternative, without comprising on that all-important needle retention for indoor display. It boasts a slimmer shape, making it perfect for those who are tight on space without losing the denseness to its branches. In fact, the Fraser fir tends to feature a much fuller, compact shape giving you even more choice for the decorations. Its needles have a two-toned colour, with a vibrant green on top whilst the underneath highlights a beautiful silver/blue shimmer, giving this tree a real festival feel.
The Norway Spruce, considered to be your traditional Christmas tree breed, is an ideal option for outdoor displays and cooler conservatories. Its prickly needles are shorter than those of the Nordmann but give off a refreshing, forest scent.
