Christmas Trees

Choosing the Best Christmas Tree!

Our stores in Vancouver and Surrey BC sell Christmas trees starting in late November and through December. We sell trees grown right here in the Fraser Valley. We buy the majority of our trees from a small family farm in Aldergrove that has been growing trees for generations. You can choose from Douglas, Noble, Grand, and Fraser Firs. You can choose a fresh cut green tree or have one of our trees Flocked to make it look like fresh fallen snow.

Douglas Firs - are the most popular tree here and you can choose from a Naturally grown tree that has not been pruned or the bushier Douglas Firs that have been trimmed to make them the perfect pyramidal Christmas tree.

Noble Firs – If you are looking for a tree that holds its needles better than any other tree look no further than the Noble Fir. These trees have a hint of blue to their needles and have nice even layers of branches.

Fraser Firs – If you have lots of heavy ornaments try one of our Fraser Firs. These have the strongest branches. They also have more space between the branches for the ornaments to hang.

Grand Firs – The last type of tree that you can choose from is by no means the least interesting. As the name implies the Grand Firs are a wonderful tree to have. They have the strongest fragrance of all the trees. If you enjoy the scent of your Christmas tree you should try a Grand Fir.

If you want to keep the tree alive after Christmas we also have live trees with roots that can be planted in your garden after Christmas.

How to Care for Your Christmas Tree

Here are a few simple tips to ensure that your Christmas Tree lasts as long as possible this Christmas.

Fresh Cut Trees

  • Immediately cut one inch off the bottom of the tree trunk (we may have done this for you already), immerse in a bucket of warm water
  • Always use a tree stand with a water reservoir
  • Add Christmas tree preservative product to the water
  • Place the tree away from any heating elements or air vents
  • Check the water every day, if the tree dries up the cut will seal up and the tree will not absorb any more water causing more needles drop
  • For best results use low voltage tree lights or the new LED lights to prevent the tree from drying out

Live Trees

Live trees should NOT be kept inside the house for more than 7 to 10 days. To ensure that your tree has the best chance of surviving be you should acclimatize the tree to indoor temperatures. To do this follow these simple steps:

1.  On the first day place the tree in a cool area between 15° and 18° C (50° to 65° F)

2.  On the second day bring the tree indoors and place in its spot

3.  Place the tree away from the fireplace and all heating vents

4.  Keep the roots of the tree moist while indoors by checking it every day

5.  Use only miniature or LED Christmas lights

6.  Do not leave the lights on for more than 4 to 6 hours per day

When the Holidays are over you need to acclimatize the tree to outdoor temperatures by:

1.  Placing the tree in a cool area for at least two days prior to moving outside

2.  Plant the tree in the garden with liquid “Transplanter” fertilizer

(If the temperatures outside are below freezing then keep the tree moist and cool, but prevent it from freezing, and delay planting until the ground has warmed up)

Flocked

  • The flocking helps to hold needles on the tree so you do not have to provide water for the tree, however watering the tree helps prevent the tree from drying out
  • A flocked tree comes complete with a stand and is ready to setup, decorate and enjoy

Remove the plastic wrapping and store at the base of the tree for easy re-wrapping and removal after Christmas
