Comments: O Christmas Tree

Ity looks to be an Eastern White Pine, although I am by no means, an arborist, or qualified. I am no good at identifying baby pines, or firs....

damn....

someone must know...

very cute, and and a word of caution re: the cast iron stand....they smart if dropped on your foot...

I think it's good that you're easing your way into this whole "live tree" thing with something small :-)

Sissy Willis - at SISU has a link to an online site to identify the 15 types of Christmas trees sold commercially in the US...

Her post is here:

Since she's the one who posted about it - I figured I should give her due credit.

Give it a try and see what you come up with. *grin*

Whatever kinda tree it is, one thing's for sure, it's cute!

I agree, great first starter tree.

Live trees are the only way to go. How you found one that has no smell is beyond me.

That baby tree needs a little hamster to go with it...

Thanks Teresa: It is either a Douglas Fir or a White Fir. Doesn't look that white to me.

Bou: Go jump in a lake. No hamsters at this house for a while. Even if she is pregnant, don't look at me!!!! And keep that idea away from my hubby!
