Legend has it that British monk, St. Boniface, first introduced “Christmas Trees” to Germany in the 7th century. In America, Christmas Trees were seen as early as 1747, and by the 1920’s, the decorated Christmas Tree custom was nearly universal throughout the country. Today, millions of people from many nations participate in this centuries-old tradition!
Douglas-Fir is one of the world's most impressive trees. One noted naturalist called it "the highest expression of tree greatness in our time." Indeed, the Douglas-Fir species forms some of the tallest and most magnificent forests in the world, dominating millions of square miles of wild forest in the West. Widely cultivated abroad, Douglas-Fir, with its sweet fragrance and wonderful symmetry, is cherished in America as a prime Christmas Tree species.
In 1956, Congress proclaimed an ancient, 275 foot-tall Giant Sequoia standing in King’s Canyon National Park to be a National Shrine — the official, living Christmas Tree of the USA. Fact is, Sequoias much smaller than the “General Grant” make ideal Christmas Trees too! And with their perfectly conical shape and graceful, airy foliage, Giant Sequoias are prized also for ornamental planting. A very hardy tree that can grow in many climates, Giant Sequoias become ever more impressive with age.
Fall and winter are seasons of “dormancy” for most trees in most places, and, as a result, even so-called evergreen trees display a distinct change of color during these seasons. Our trees are no exception. If the trees appear bronze, reddish, or brown-tipped, don't worry! Be assured, they are absolutely healthy. Bronzing reflects a normal, natural, seasonal color fluctuation. You can enjoy the colorful trees of winter!
