We moved through our largest 12-16' Christmas trees earlier than normal this season. Fortunately MANY folks called ahead and have had us reserve their trees (first pick) many of the Silvertips were cut in the field for specific clients. We have our wild Silvertip of course, a very few dense Douglas Fir (which we keep in the green house to protect from cold and drying), "Open Grade" Noble Fir (denser than Silvertip and not as dense as the #1 Nobles) and we have LUSH, fragrant, supple #1 Noble Fir 4-13'.
In our LIVING trees we were able to get a few (more than usual) Picea glauca ssp. densata, Black Hills Spruce. This is a smaller and thicker sub-species of White Spruce which grows in the far northern American continent (well into the arctic circle). And we have Blue and Green Colorado Spruce (the state tree of Utah). Instructions included.
We have Long-Lasting cedar garland by the foot or the roll and MANY sizes of fresh wreaths!
