Frequently Asked Questions

Why Fraser Fir Wreaths and Trees? 
Fraser fir is commonly used in wreaths and for Christmas trees because the needles are thick, deep green and long lasting.  They also create a lovely pine fragrance.  White pine Christmas trees use to be all the rage but have quite gone out of style mostly because they turn brown quicker and shed.  It is much nicer to have a wreath or tree that holds up through the holidays than trying to replace something.  Our Fraser Fir wreaths and trees will last longer with proper care.  Please see our Wreath Care section to keep them fresher longer.

Why Fresh Wreaths?
Fresh wreaths make great holiday gifts as well as decorations for home, church and community.  They are environmentally friendly as we tip trees that grow back without having to cut trees down.  Best of all, they look very pretty and smell great.  Fresh Fraser Fir wreaths make great gifts.  You can have a wreath delivered right to your gift recipient's door in time for them to decorate for the holidays.  What a nice surprise that they will be talking about all season.

How long will my fresh wreath last?
Your wreath should last several months.  Wreaths do better in cooler, moist climates.  If you live in a hot, dry area, you can help your wreath to last longer.  Keep your fresh wreath out of the sun and mist it every other day.  If you live in a cooler area, you do not need to do anything to keep your wreath looking good throughout the holiday season.  Our fraser fir wreaths hold up well because the tips are not cut until the wreath is ready to be made.  Usually a day before your order ships.   Fraser fir itself has the type of needles that don't shed very quickly and that look greener longer. 

How do you ship?
Individual wreath orders are shipped via UPS.   UPS Ground shipping on wreaths is free.  We do charge extra for 2nd day and next day UPS shipping.  If necessary, we can ship wreaths through the postal service.  For bow and decoration orders, you can choose USPS or UPS shipping.  Please call us to discuss shipping for large wreath orders.

What size wreath do I need?
The most popular wreath size is 24" because this size looks good on a standard 32" door.   Larger wreaths are used on larger doors and smaller wreaths are often used to decorate inside the home or other areas outside the home. 

Fraser Fir Christmas Trees vs Fake Christmas Trees

Why use a real tree?

Economic Advantages:
Real Christmas trees are grown on United States family farms, making an important economic contribution to many rural communities in America.  Fake trees are made in Korea, Taiwan and China and importing artifical trees contributes to the US trade deficit.  Help promote economic growth in the US.


Environmental Advantages:
Real Christmas trees absorb carbon dioxide and other harmful greenhouse gases and release fresh oxygen into the air.  A real tree has a wonderful fragrance.  One acre of real Christmas trees provides the daily oxygen needed for 18 people.  There are about 500,000 acres of Christmas trees in the US which provide oxygen for 9 million people daily.

Fake Christmas trees are made from non-renewable plastics.  The manufacture of petroleum based plastics use up natural resources.  The manufacturing of plastic and metal components in fake Christmas trees consume energy and create pollution.

For every real tree harvested, another one is planted in its place to ensure a steady supply year after year.  Christmas tree fields support turkey, quail, songbirds, rabbits and deer.

The avergae use of a fake Christmas tree is only 6 or 7 years.  Eventually they all go to the landfill as garbage.  Fake Christmas trees are not biodegradable.  The plastics and metals that they contain, including lead, will remain in our landfills for centuries.

Real Christmas trees are an all-American renewable, recyclable resource.  After the holidays, real trees are chipped into biodegradable mulch, which replenishes soil in landscapes, parks, and schools.  Most communities offer recycling programs.  Recycled real Christmas trees are also used as wind and water barriers at beaches and river beds to fight sand and soil erosion.  They protect our water supplies, and provide refuge for wildlife.  When sunk in ponds, they provide excellent refuge and feeding areas for fish.

Health Effects:
Some consumers have suffered an allergic reaction to materials in their fake trees.  Some consumers are allergic to dust that accumulates on surfaces of real trees grown outside.  You can wash most allergens off by spraying the tree with water before bringing it inside. 

Are fake trees really fireproof?  No!  The artificial tree, which was advertised as "flame retardant," did resist the flames for an amount of time, but then was engulfed in flames and projected significant heat and toxic smoke, containing hydrogen chloride gas and dioxin. 

The safest Christmas tree is a fresh, well-watered tree.  A real tree has never started a fire.  Faulty Christmas lights, candles, and fireplaces can start tree fires.
