There are several main types of trees. Fir, Pine and Cedar. In general the branches of fir trees are stronger which makes it the best Christmas tree for you if you want to hang a lot of large ornaments. Fir trees have a distinct scent and are easier to decorate since they have extra space between the branches. Most common varieties of fir trees are Douglas Fir, Fraser Fir, Grand and Noble Fir.

Douglas Fir is dark green, usually shaped as a pyramid. It will provide a lot of space to nestle in garlands and lights. Brightly colored garlands will be a good idea when decorating a Douglas Fir tree.
