Choose the right Christmas tree for this holiday season

There are many options for ornamental trees during the holiday season. Texas A&M AgriLife experts have straightforward ideas and tips for the Christmas tree, including the ever-popular option – container or balls and bullap trees.

Oregon and North Carolina cover 51% of the Christmas trees each year, with 3.4 million and 4.3 million trees respectively. However, the number of tree farms in Texas has increased in recent years as a destination and as a supplier of saplings and locally grown trees.

Fraser, Douglas, and Bassam horses are popular tree species from other parts of the country. Eastern Red Cedar, Virginia and Afghanistan pine, and Arizona, Leyland and Carolina sapphire are ideal for growing in the Texas climate. These can be purchased locally as a cut tree or in a container.
