Looking for a real Christmas tree?

Will you be going natural or artifical this year?

Natural Christmas trees are not only good for the environment, but in vogue. There are 4 basic types of trees sold at farms and nursuries:

1. Scotch pine- decent needle retention, but it requires plenty of pesticides
2. Balsam fir- soft needles, very aromatic
3. White spruce- excellent needle retention, but disagreeable odour when needles are crushed.
4. Fraser fir- pleasant scent and ultra-soft needles with good retention, but more expensive.
