4 types of christmas tree with name labels

Different types of Christmas tree


norway spruce

Norway spruce

The most traditional looking Christmas tree - has a mid-green colour, a fine, delicate foliage and a distinctive 'Christmassy' scent. Spruce lose their needles quicker than other trees once moved indoors, so its best to buy closer to Christmas.

Add a touch of Scandi style to your festive decorations this year.


nordmann fir

Nordman fir

Distinctive broad, bold green needles with whitish underside. Firs have strong branches which make them a great choice for hanging lots of decorations on.

It's a popular Christmas tree because the needles aren't sharp and don't shed as much as other trees.

lodgepole pine

Lodgepole pine

A cheerful green colour, tinged slightly with yellow, and a sharp fragrance. It drops fewer needles than fir and spruce, which makes it a long lasting tree. It also saves on hoovering time!

Used by Native Americans to hold up tipis, this sturdy tree also makes a rather dashing Christmas tree.

scots pine

Scots pine

Fragrant and attractive, this lovely native conifer has blue-green foliage and soft needles.

The perfect choice if you'd like Scotland's national tree on display in your living room this Christmas.
