Pine trees are often selected as Christmas trees and for good reason—they're fantastic. The Scotch pine is one of the most popular Christmas picks. It is equipped with stiff branches, thickly covered in dark green needles that are 1 to 3 inches long.
The branches are extremely sturdy and can support heavy ornaments. In addition, the tree is very open, providing ample space for ornaments. To sweeten the pot, these trees are deliciously fragrant and will fill your home with a lovely pine aroma throughout the season. And, the needles will not shed for 4 weeks.
*Be on the lookout, Scotch pines naturally yellow in the winter so they are sometimes sprayed with green coloring.
