The Balsam Fir

The Balsam Fir is one of the three types of Christmas trees grown here on the farm. Balsams make for great Christmas trees due to their dark-green color, long-lasting needles, and full shape. Balsam Fir trees can retain their needles for several weeks when cared for properly. The most notable characteristic of the Balsam Fir is their strong fragrance. After they are cut Balsam trees give off the classic New England Christmas scent, making them a popular favorite for Christmas trees.
