Fresh Trees, Wreaths and Roping


Live Trees

Live Trees Our fresh trees arrive the week prior to Thanksgiving, organized by size and type and hung upright in our covered greenhouse. Stop in and choose from a selection of over 1,000 trees. Please call us for specific sizes and pricing. Wannemaker’s will gladly make a fresh cut, wrap, and load your tree.




The five varieties of trees we offer are:

Fraser Fir

Fraser FirThe most popular fresh tree due to its fragrance, excellent needle retention, and stiff branches – great for hanging ornaments. Its attractive 1″ needles are silvery-green on the back side and soft to the touch. The space between branches makes decorating easy. Wannemaker’s Fraser Firs are shipped fresh directly from North Carolina. We carry Fraser Firs from 2-12 feet tall.

Balsam Fir

Balsam FirThe traditional Christmas tree. Often known for being the “Charlie Brown Christmas Tree”. The Balsam Fir is a beautiful dark-green color with airy branches, good needle retention, and a wonderful evergreen fragrance. Wannemaker’s brings in the highest quality Balsam Firs direct from Nova Scotia and range from 4 to 14 feet.

Noble Fir

Noble FirA unique hard to find Tree from the West Coast. Noble Firs are a deep green color with tiered sturdy branches and are often used for fresh wreaths. They have excellent needle retention. Wannemaker’s brings in fresh Noble Firs directly from Oregon and are 6-8 feet in height.

Grand Fir

Grand FirThe Grand Fir is a glossy dark green color with needles that are 1″ to 1 1/2″ long. Like the Noble Fir, the Grand Fir is a unique variety of tree from the West Coast. The Grand Fir has an incredible powerful citrus-like evergreen aroma.

Nordmann Fir

Nordmann Fir Has strong branches that are perfect for holding large or heavy ornaments. The short, dark green needles are soft and flattened on the twig, that gives the tree its shiny appearance and helps prevent drying. With very little fragrance, Nordmann Firs are the best Christmas tree for anyone with allergies, and with superb needle retention Nordmann Firs have the distinctive quality of shedding the fewest, if any, needles.

Care tips from Jim Wannemaker

Don’t forget to put your tree in water for 2-3 hours after a fresh cut to ensure longevity. If making a fresh cut at home, be sure to remove at least an inch from the trunk. The trunk should always been in water. A healthy tree may use up to several quarts of water each day. The tree should be in an area away from heat sources to prevent it from drying out. We also sell a preservative that can be added to the water to maintain freshness. Ask an associate for details.

Don’t forget a stand for your tree! We have a variety of stands for all size fresh trees including Krinner’s Christmas Tree Genie. This stand makes setting up your fresh tree simple! Just place your Christmas Tree in the stand, hold it straight and step onto the foot pedal until the claws firmly grab the tree trunk. Keep your tree healthy and fresh with the large water holding capability!
