Fraser Fir Christmas tree. Fraser fir trees artificial or real, are crowd-pleasers. This artificial Christmas tree has a silvery-green hue and inch-long needles.

Not at all related to firs, the real Douglas Firs has cones that hang downwards. This is something you might find in realistic artificial Christmas trees that really make realism an art form. Douglas fir Christmas trees usually are cone-shaped, branches are spreading to drooping, and the needles are dark green or blue green.  

Balsam Fir Christmas tree.  Balsam Fir Christmas trees are relatively dense, pyramid-shaped trees, with a slim tapering tip.
