Types of Real Christmas Trees

I have been accustomed in a household where Christmas is celebrated every year with plenty of gifts under the tree and an artificial Christmas tree propped on the corner of the living room for everyone to marvel.

I thought all Christmas trees were made of plastic when I was young. I didn’t know that we could actually use real trees as Christmas tree. If you prefer the real trees versus the artificial ones then you may refer to the list below of famous real Christmas trees.

Here are types of trees you can use for your Christmas tree if you live in a cold place which can accommodate these kinds of trees. Which one is your choice?

Douglas Fir

Douglas Fir – quite famous for its lush leaves and citrus scent, it has a good shape and green color and needles are retained as long it is watered regularly

Fraser Fir

Fraser Fir – similar to Nordmann’s qualities but leaves are dense but this kind of fir is more compact and has great retention of color all throughout the Christmas season

Scotch Pine

Scotch Pine – has a superior retention of needle and has  a crisp mild scent, one of the popular Christmas trees


Blue Spruce

Blue Spruce – has bluish tint on the needles giving it the name blue spruce, its needles are rather sharp thus making it a challenge to decorate it but the unique color of its needles make it a fine selection, also has a sweet scent

Nordmann Fir

Nordmann Fir – very popular due to its needle retention qualities, great natural shape and dark green color

  • Very interesting post you’ve got in here, Sis. Didn’t know there are various types of Xmas trees.

    I grew up celebrating the essence of Xmas everyday of my life even without the Xmas tree propped on the corner of our simple abode;-)

    I personally believe that the act of giving and receiving love everyday is something that is natural and innate in us. It’s becoming rare these days but I know that deep within us is someone who can give ourselves selflessly and to me , that is the real essence of Xmas.

  • I’ve been longing for a real tree for my Christmas tree, but since I live in a tropical country, this dream will only remain a dream. I wish Santa will grant this dream someday! lol! Maybe my Christmas will never be the same when I’ll have a tree like that. :-)

  • Living here in the US gives me the chance to put up a live Christmas tree just using a Cedar Bush that can be an alternate for Fir. But I love to to try the Blue Spruce for a change! It would be nice to really have one of that fir Christmas tree in the front yard and decorate it on Christmas! :)

  • Making Christmas trees out of the real tree is beneficial in a lot of ways. Aside from the savings you also get to make use of it in a more artistic way. The only thing for me is – I don’t think I can find real trees such as that here in our place so for now, all I can do is make use of what’s available in the mall…

  • I like Blue Spruce, we’ve always planned to have a real Christmas tree, I think we will have one this Christmas..thanks for sharing all these different varieties …
