Noble Firs
When it comes to popularity, the Noble Fir at our Christmas Tree lots has all the other Christmas Trees beat by a mile. The Noble Fir is popular due to its layered appearance, which allows for more room to hang ornaments between the branches. The branches are some of the strongest around and even the heaviest ornaments will produce minimal sag. Its needles are over and inch long and when the Christmas Tree lights are on, the blue-green color of the needled gives it a beautiful lightest display.


Douglas Firs
If you’re looking for a classic Christmas touch, the Douglas Fir is the way to go. One of the most popular Christmas Trees throughout the U.S., the Douglas Fir is known for its bushy branches, dense appearance, and defined cone shape. The Douglas Fir’s needles are dark-green to blue-green in color and the needles spread out in all directions from the branch. It has a distinctive pine scent and it gives off one of the best aromas among Christmas Trees when the needles are crushed. Big Tex Trees carries only the best Douglas Firs. When you pick one up from us, you’ll know it can support a lot of Christmas lights!


Grand Firs
Our favorite Christmas Tree for its rich fragrance, the Grand Fir is unique in the way it displays its needles. The needles on top are dark colored and shoot out from the side creating a flat looking appearance. Underneath the needles is a silver underside can reflect light which produces a sparkling display when draped with Christmas lights. The needles when crushed can give off a citrusy smell. The Grand Fir is horizontally spread which allows the upper and lower sides of the branches to be clearly visible for ornament hanging!
