Appearance: The Fraser Fir has a typical pyramid shape with upward-pointing needles and strong branches to bear the weight of your most treasured baubles. It boasts perfect symmetry and bushy, dark green foliage with blue undertones.
History: The Fraser Fir might be a relative newcomer to the British Christmas tree market, but across the Atlantic it’s a bestseller. It even has the Presidential seal of approval – a Fraser Fir is often chosen as the official Christmas tree of the White House. Once native to the Appalachian mountains of South- Eastern United States, the Fraser Fir is now sustainably grown throughout Scandinavia & the Highlands of Scotland.
Size: The Fraser comes in a variety of heights, from 5ft upwards, but its slimmer shape makes it the best choice for a cosy home corner. The Fraser is a byword for space-saving luxury.
Scent and Needles: The Fraser Fir has great needle retention, but like the Norway Spruce it prides itself on that typical pine scent. Your family will definitely notice the zesty citrus aroma.
Care: Although the needles last well, you should still keep your Fraser away from heat sources like a radiator, and water it well throughout the season. Longer lasting than the Norway Spruce, a well-kept Fraser should last about five weeks.
