Picking the Right Christmas Tree

Amazing Tree Service has many years of experience performing Essex County tree services. This winter, our professionals want to bring all of our expertise to your disposal as you begin the task of picking out the right Christmas tree for your home. While there are many people who take advantage of artificial trees at this time of year, the popular choice for this festive season is a real tree.

Here are some tips that will help you pick out the perfect tree this holiday season:
  • There are three major families of Christmas tree that are often used for the holidays: fir trees, spruce trees and pine trees. 
  • Trees in tree lots have sometimes been cut for over two weeks. Moisture is important to check for, since the moisture will keep the tree green and leafy for longer.
  • Pick up and drop the stump of the tree on the ground and see how many needles fall off. This is a good baseline to see how fresh the tree really is.
  • Some trees retain needles better than others – Scotch pines, Douglas firs and other firs have a greater ability to keep their needles longer.
  • Buy a stand and a plastic disposal bag to place underneath your new tree to make cleanup as easy as possible.
