For nearly 20 years, Agway has prided itself on procuring the highest quality of trees and greenery.
Considered the “Cadillac” of Christmas Trees, Fraser Firs are reknown for their bluish-green color, and ability to hold heavy ornaments as they tend to have stronger thicker branches that turn slightly upward. They also have excellent needle retention, with thick blue-hued dark green coloring. The undersides are lighter-bluish, and the tops are deep green, complimenting each other well. These are a little lower on the scent-factor.
Balsams tend to be the most popular cut Christmas tree for a variety of reasons. Its distinctive and long lasting aroma can give your home a truly festive feeling. The double needle pattern gives them the extra full appeal as well. With a fresh cut and consistent watering, needles will retain for weeks.
Tree Care Tips
The most important factor in giving your tree a long life during the holiday season is to keep it watered. When you pick out your tree, our staff will give it a fresh cut. As soon as you get it home, you should put it in water. Even if you don’t plan to bring it right inside your home, you should store it in a cool, shady area outdoors, in a bucket of warm water. The warm water will be quickly taken up since it just had a fresh cut. Once indoors, use a tree stand large enough to safely hold the trunk and a lot of water. A 5″ trunk can uptake up to 1 gallon of water each day. Use a tree preservative to assist with easy water uptake as well. Avoid letting your tree stand dry out – the sap in the trunk will seal up the pores making it difficult for water to be absorbed moving forward.
Available in a variety of sizes. Decorate and enjoy for the holidays, then plant in the spring for forever beauty!
Live Tree Care Tips:
The adaptability of the species should be considered. Many species are shipped outside of their natural area and may not be adaptable to other areas. Check with a reliable nursery or extension forester.
• Keep in mind that Living Trees are VERY heavy and bulky. A six foot tall balled and burlapped tree
will weigh as much as 250 pounds.
• The tree should be stored in an unheated, sheltered area such as a garage or porch, out of the wind and sun. Do not expose the tree to freezing temperatures at any time.
• The tree will need adequate water. The root ball or soil should be kept slightly damp but not flooded. Wrap the root ball of a balled tree in plastic or place in a tub while it is in the house.
• Live trees may be decorated, but with care. If lights are used, they must not give off any heat.
• Do not remove the tree directly from a warm house out into freezing temperatures. Instead, move to a sheltered area first for several days.
• If the ground is unfrozen, the tree may be replanted. The spot to be dug should be mulched to prevent freezing. Plant as soon as possible.
• Do not remove the burlap and strapping (unless it is plastic). This keeps the root ball solid and secure. In the instance of a plastic cover, cut the cord and roll down the plastic at least half way prior
to planting. Tap the tree container of a potted tree and remove prior to planting. Do not attempt to remove soil from the root system. Earth removed from the original hole should be backfilled
around the root ball. Mulch heavily over the top of the planted root ball to prevent it from freezing. Water only as needed: a flooded tree may not survive.
• Stake the trees to prevent wind tipping or damage during the first growing season.
A great option for individuals and families that want a real tree, but don’t have the space for a full-sized tree. Also perfect for offices, classrooms and nursing homes. All tabletop trees come with a plastic stand that is leak-proof and holds the tree steady.
