North Carolina has over 1,300 growers producing Fraser Firs on an estimated 40,000 acres. Fraser Fir trees represent 98% of all species grown in North Carolina.
The North Carolina Christmas Tree Industry is ranked second in the nation in number of trees harvested and cash receipts.
The North Carolina Fraser fir has been judged the Nation's best through a contest sponsored by the National Christmas Tree Association and chosen for the official White House Christmas tree twelve times (more than any other species)...1971, 1973, 1982, 1984, 1990, 1993, 1995, 1997, 2005, 2007, 2008 and 2012.
The North Carolina Fraser fir Christmas tree is the most popular Christmas tree in North America and is shipped into every state in the U.S. as well as the Caribbean Islands, Mexico, Canada, Bermuda, Japan and other points all over the world.
Producing the best tree for your family that nature and nurture can provide takes much time and effort. It can take anywhere from twelve to fifteen years for a tree to be ready to harvest.
It is a difficult and time consuming process, yet Christmas tree growers agree it is worth it when their trees become the decorative centerpiece of your home during the holiday season.
