“Premium Trees – as defined by Cool Springs Nursery
Heavy density; Three faces without defects; One or fewer minor defects on one face. Consistent conical shape;
Cool Springs Nursery specializes in Fraser Fir Trees because of our location… We live, work, play in the mountains of North Carolina and Tennessee which is the only places that the Fraser Fir tree will grow naturally. Fraser Fir Trees is the most popular Christmas Tree on the east coast. Its fragrance, shape, strong limbs, and ability to retain its soft needles for a long time when cut make it one of the best Christmas Trees in the world.
We do things a little differently than most when determining the grade of a Fraser Fir Christmas Tree…
The USDA has extensive criteria for the grading of Christmas Trees. The criteria are based primarily on shape, density, and “flaws.” Flaws are broken down into “minor defects” and “noticeable defects,” the difference being that “minor defects” cannot be seen from more than 8 feet away, while “noticeable defects” are visible at distances greater than 8 feet. In all cases, Cool Springs Nursery grades their trees more stringently than the USDA requires. This is not the case with most growers. Cool Springs delivers trees that will put your business ahead of the competition.”
