All About Douglas Firs, America’s Most Popular Christmas Tree

5/4/2017

Going by a number of names, including red fir, Douglas spruce, and Oregon pine, the Douglas Fir has long been the country's most beloved Christmas tree. If you grew up in a home that celebrated Christmas, there's a very good chance that – at one point or another – you had one of these beautiful trees in your living room. Known for their soft, greenish-blue needles and their sweet, citrusy fragrance, Douglas Firs are strong and offer good needle retention. Because of this, they can withstand the weight of copious amounts of ornaments and – better yet – they won't leave a carpet of needles on your living room floor!

Why Do Evergreens Stay Green All Year Round?

Christmas Trees Delivered
4/4/2017

Evergreens are a beacon of hope in the middle of winter, something green amid the gray skies and white landscapes. But why? How are they able to stay green while deciduous trees (oaks, maples, birch, etc.) lose their leaves in the fall? Both evergreens and deciduous trees get their green color from chlorophyll, which is required for photosynthesis, the process which plants use to make their food. It requires both sunlight and water. In the fall, when days get short, and less sunlight is available, deciduous trees lose their chlorophyll, the green fades, and the color show begins. But as the leaves dry out, the fading continues, and the leaves eventually drop.

What’s on Your Door?

Fresh Christmas Trees Delivered
3/6/2017

I remember when I was a kid, getting the family Christmas tree was a big deal. We didn't go quite as far as Clark Griswold and family, but it was wonderful. My brothers and sisters, Mom and Dad, would pile into the family sedan, and head out to the country. We'd tramp through a tree farm, in search of that one, special, perfect tree. What seemed like hours later (probably no more than 20 minutes), rosy cheeks and with frostbitten toes, we'd climb back in the car while Dad tied the tree to the roof of the car.

Discarded Christmas Trees Gain – and Give – New Life in Riverside, California

Fresh Christmas Trees
1/31/2017

We all know that Premium Christmas Wreaths offers the best fresh Christmas trees in the business. But, after the season is over, what happens to all of those old, dried out trees? After being picked up, many of them are turned into mulch. Others are used as fuel in waste-to-energy plants. Some of them are simply sent to the landfill and forgotten. Well, that's a shame! In Riverside, California, however, things are working a little differently as they've found an ingenious use for their residents' discarded Christmas trees.

Holly: Ornamental and Ancient

7/16/2015

Holly is a genus of diminutive evergreen trees that features smooth, shortened branches. Capable of growing in any temperate zone, the most unique species can be found in the Americas and Southeast Asia.

Holly’s history traces back millions of years and fossil records indicate that the plant was already widespread and established well over 66 million years ago. Its ornamental use, however, has slowly accumulated and evolved throughout the years.
