Nordman Fir

b. Nordman Fir The Nordman Fir is the most popular Christmas tree in Europe – it’s known for:

  • Having soft foliage and an even shape – making it a joy to decorate!
  • Glossy, dark green needles that have a whitish/light blue underside
  • Strong branches, which are great for hanging those big glass decorations

The Nordman Fir is a good choice if you suffer from allergies, as the needles have a thick waxy coating.
