Types of Trees

Giesbrecht's Tree Farm grows 3 different varieties of trees, all for the Christmas tree market.  They take anywhere from 7 to 9 years to mature and be ready for harvest.  Our trees range in size from 3ft. - 8ft.

Noble Fir

The bluish-green needles are roughly 4 sided and over 1 inch long.  The lower surface of branches are exposed due to the upward twisting needles.  The stiff branches make it a good tree for heavy ornaments and also provide excellent greenery for wreaths and garland.  The Noble Fir have excellent needle retention and are one of the longest lasting cut trees.

Fraser Fir

The needles are 1/2 to 1 inch long and tend to curl upward.  They are usually dark green on the upper side and lighter underneath, giving them a silvery look.  Fraser Fir have strong branches and good needle retention.

Grand Fir

The flat needles are 1 to 1 1/2 inches long and a glossy dark green color. The Grand Fir have a strong fragrance and a delicate, lacy look.
