If you live near Smith Mountain Lake Virginia, then you are blessed to see an abundance of beautiful trees all year round. But since this is the season when we particularly appreciate pine trees, I thought it would be fun to share a few Christmas tree facts.
Did you know that six species account for about 90 percent of the nation’s Christmas tree trade? Scotch pine ranks first, comprising about 40 percent of the market, followed by Douglas fir which accounts for about 35 percent. The other big sellers are noble fir, white pine, balsam fir and white spruce. If you have not yet found the perfect tree for your home this Christmas then check out your local nursery or one of the local businesses below.
