Looking for the perfect Christmas tree? Depending what you like there are a variety of trees to pick from. Here is a list of trees that may appeal to you and your family. Happy decorating!

Fraser Firs

Frasers could be considered the generalists of the Christmas tree world. Their shape can vary from skinny and wide. “They’re the Cadillac of the tree business,” Lutz says. But that also means their cost can be on the higher end.But they also support ornaments where other varieties may not. That’s thanks to their branches, which are stiff.

Scots Pine

Among the more classically defined Christmas trees to grow out of Michigan, Scots pines are dense in their needle distribution but manage to hold on to them well. They’re also one of the more economical choices for those on a budget.

Douglas Fir

Douglas firs also carry a dense supply of needles, but they don’t always stand up to the weight requirements of ornaments, lights, and tinsel. Also considered an economical choice.

Concolor Fir

Concolor firs have the color tone of a Blue spruce, but their needles smell like citrus. Imagine a holiday season where the home greets its owner with the subtle but fresh aroma of lemon or lime.

Balsam Fir

The Balsam fir actually smells like Christmas – if Christmas had a scent. It has a darker green hue and thick strong needles. Balsams also carry the classic form one expects from a Christmas tree, wide at the bottom and slowly thinner the higher you get.

Blue Spruce

The always popular Blue spruce is a fan favorite for the color. A Blue-bordering-on-silver shine does justice to the variety’s name. The branches are also stiff and hold ornaments well. But be wary of the needles, which carry a bit sharper of a point when handled.


Exotic varieties

Korean fir

Despite being native to soils in Asia, Korean firs do well in Michigan’s climate. Its needles are a mixture of deep green and silver on their undersides. These trees come with a few caveats though – they can be wide, which means finding a spot in the house might not be easy.

Nordmann Fir

The most popular varieties in Europe, the Nordmann fir have a strong green color with prominent layering in its branches, according to the Michigan Christmas Tree Association.

Grand Fir

These trees aren’t for the faint of heart or homes with low roofs. Grand firs can grow well beyond the typical height of a Douglas, despite them looking similar. Even growing tall, these trees can also grow wide, like Korean firs.
