There are lots of Christmas tree varieties to choose from, like Fraser Firs, Blue Spruce, Canaan Fir, Douglas Fir, Scotch Pine, Balsam Fir and Norway Spruce.
Have a look at our list of the best Christmas tree farms in North Carolina.
Helms’ Christmas Tree Farm
6345 Christmas Tree Ln, Vale, NC 28168
Helms’ Christmas Tree Farm “was established in 1972. For nearly half a century, the farm has been providing choose and cut trees for the families in Lincoln county and beyond. Henry has been producing choose and cut trees of multiple varieties for nearly half a century.
Helms’ Christmas Tree Farm believes in regenerative planting. This means that when a tree is cut, one is put back in it’s place the next year.”
Christmas Tree species include:
The Carolina Saphire
The Carolina Saphire has beautiful silvery blue / teal coloration year round. The branches are sturdy, but have a lacy appearance. Its aroma and color interest make a great display in holiday greenery.
For Christmas trees, sheared trees are preferred, although some people feel shearing results in trees too dense for larger ornaments. Needle retention is good to excellent.
Colorado Blue Spruce
This species is bluish-gray in color. This Christmas Tree has good symmetrical form and has an attractive blue foliage.
