FC: Top 5 Christmas Tree Choices | By Tim
1: Have a Holly Jolly Christmas | The fifth most favorable type of Christmas tree is the Balsam Fir. It is often chosen for it's lovely fragrance, and it is dark green. Be careful, it has soft branches!
2: The fourth most favorable type of Christmas tree is the Grand Fir. It is very soft and cannot hold heavy ornaments.
3: The third most favorable Christmas tree is the Colorado Blue Spruce. It has a nice pyramidal shape and has strong limbs. It can be decorated easily and has needles that are not sharp enough to harm. The branches are also evenly spaced.
4: The Noble Fir is the second most favorable type of Christmas tree. It is easy to hang ornaments on due to its large branches and is also used to make wreaths due to its texture.
5: The Christmas tree that is most loved in the United States is the Fraser Fir. It has very soft, beautiful green silver needles. It has great needle retention, and is considered the ultimate Christmas tree.
