It is not just about the shape and size for families heading out to pick out their perfect Christmas tree anymore. According to the National Christmas Tree Association, there are about 16 different varieties grown throughout the country. One of those options includes the Concolor Fir, which Aissen Tree Farm owner Tammy Aissen says has been growing in popularity for a number of reasons including being a little friendlier to those allergic to Christmas trees.
Aissen says another growing tree trend is having their trees colored with paint prior to being harvested to match their Christmas decorations. According to Aissen, both trends have been going on at their operation over the last two to three years.
