Royal Fir Trees

Of the many types of fir trees traditionally used, the Nordmann Fir is truly the Royalty of firs. The "perfect tree" has been grown commercially since 1960 and today over 8 million Nordmann Firs are produced annually in Denmark, the largest producer in Europe.
Our Royal Fir is of the Nordmann variety and is specially selected for:

  • an even cone shape
  • lush, dark green color
  • soft-to-the-touch, long-lasting needles

      An academic name of Nordmann Fir is Abies nordmanniana. Its characteristics are:

The Tradition of a decorated Christmas tree started much earlier in the year 1600 in Freiburg, Germany and by the 18th Century had become popular throughout Northern Europe. Queen Victoria introduced the Christmas tree to England in the 19th Century and today beautifully decorated trees are a family gathering point at Christmas everywhere.
