HOLIDAY ACRES HAS MANY DIFFERENT TYPES OF TREES TO CHOOSE FROM
Virginia Pine (Pinus Virginianan) is a short-needled pine with pleasant pine fragrance, dense foliage and good growth rates. It has been by far the most widely planted southern Christmas tree over the past three decades and still is the most common species at most farms in the deep South
Often called the "Cadillac" of Christmas trees, the Fraser Fir has several key properties that earn it this title.
- Needle retention ranks first among Christmas tree species. Soft, short needles, yet a full bushy look so it is not painful to decorate a Fraser, and the ornaments and lights are not hidden by the needles.
- Strong branches so your heavy ornaments will find a prominent place, without weighing down the branch.
- The beautiful color of the Fraser is naturally dark green in color, and the undersides of the needles have a reflective silvery sheen.
- Pleasant aroma is a spicy blend of fruit and forest will gently fill your home when you display a fresh Fraser Fir.
The pre-cut Fraser Firs at Holiday Acres were shipped from North Carolina in a refrigerated truck. When they arrive, they are placed into water to keep them nice and fresh for you.
Leyland Cypress is one of the most popular trees grown in the South for Christmas trees. This tree drops very few needles and with proper care, will easily stay fresh through the entire Christmas season. In addition to being a beautiful tree with soft foliage, it is grown from cuttings and does not produce pollen; this enables many asthma sufferers to enjoy a real tree in their home.
If you suffer from allergies, please hose down your Leyland Cypress outside to wash off pollen from other plants which may have landed on your Cypress tree. Allow the tree to dry before bringing it indoors.
Murray Cypress is a variety of the Leyland Cypress. This tree drops very few needles and with proper care, will easily stay fresh through the entire Christmas season. In addition to being a beautiful tree with soft foliage and a lemon mint aroma, it is grown from cuttings and does not produce pollen; therefore enabling many asthma suffers to enjoy a real tree in their home.
CAROLINA SAPPHIRE + BLUE ICE
Carolina Sapphire and Blue Ice are varieties of the Arizona Cypress and two of the newest species developed for Christmas trees. Their foliage are blue green in color, soft to the touch, and very dense with an outstanding aroma.
Due to their tendency to dry out even in water stands, it is recommended not cutting these trees until three to four weeks before Christmas.
