Christmas Trees

Christmas Trees

The holiday season is always a time for plenty of family traditions near Toronto. One of these traditions is having your own Christmas tree.

Christmas isn’t quite complete without having a real Christmas tree at home. There is just something about the smell, the ornaments, and the sparkly lights that boost the holiday spirit.

What is a Christmas Tree?

Evergreen trees are often referred to as Christmas trees. The Christmas tree is the centre of the holiday decor.
While mini artificial trees may still have a place at Christmas, the Canadian-grown natural Christmas tree is the preferred tree.

The smell, the texture, and the feeling of a real tree can’t be beat.

Erin Hill Acres is a fantastic place to get your tree. But this Toronto area farm is also a great place to visit with your family and friends to make memories. No reservation required, tree cutting is first come first serve during our operating hours and season. Contact us.

Types of Christmas Trees

Blue Spruce

Also known as Colorado spruce. They are part of the pine family, with coniferous silver-blue-green needles. With its wonderful, piney smell, this hardy evergreen is an excellent choice for a Christmas tree.

Meyer Spruce

A popular accent tree with attractive blue-green hues. It has a pyramidal form, short needles, and does well in urban conditions. It is also deer-resistant and can tolerate dry conditions.

White Spruce

Native to Canada and NW America, this large evergreen is popularly used as Christmas trees. Their short, stiff needles and uniform shape make them ideal for hanging ornaments.

Norway Spruce

A large, pyramidal tree that has conifers that hang like ornaments. Its solid and upward-slanted branches are great for holding heavy ornaments. It also has pleasingly aromatic foliage.

Balsam Fir

A pyramid-shaped tree with short and flat needles that keep well. Its dark green color and strong fragrance make it a favourite among Christmas tree options. Its branches are also great for holiday wreaths and greenery.

Fraser Fir

Grown commercially for Christmas trees because of their fresh aroma and symmetrical shape. Their blue-green needles with silvery undersides are stiff and can hold ornaments well. They also have excellent needle retention.

Uses for Christmas Trees

A natural Christmas tree is by far the better choice and the reasons go beyond December 25th.

Evergreen tree needles are full of nutrients, making them ideal as mulch or compost. While the needles are still green, clip some, store them in paper bags or sachets to make your home smell fresh all year.

100% of a real tree can be recycled and for every tree that we cut at Erin Hill Acres, we plant two more.

Choosing to buy your tree at Erin Hill Acres is good for the environment.
