Greening with Garland

The age old tradition of displaying greens in and around the home is one that continues today.  Each type of evergreen we offer has unique qualities.  Balsam fir boughs are known for their fragrance and nice green color.  The needles are flat, as with all fir trees, but exhibit a fluffy loose appearance when wrapped around poles or over a door frame.  Noble fir boughs have flat, but slightly curled needles that are dense, moist and deep green in color.

They are very well suited for indoor use.  The scent is that of a spiced, cinnamon sort and is an especially pleasant addition to a warm holiday home.  Fraser fir boughs are blue/green in color and have short needles that are known for staying put.  They have little fragrance and are well suited for both indoor and outdoor use.
