Types of Trees
Giesbrecht's Tree Farm grow 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. We only grow trees to a height of 8 feet.
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.
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.
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.
