  • Title: Southern Christmas Tree Varieties
    Descriptive info: Southern Christmas Tree Varieties.. Leyland Cypress.. x.. Cupressocyparis leylandii.. One of the most popular trees grown in the south.. This tree is a hybrid of Monterey cypress and Alaskan cedar.. Six seedlings were discovered in 1888 by C.. J.. Leyland at Leighton Hall in the South of Wales.. The two parent trees were growing on the Leighton Hall Estate and cross bred purely by accident.. Leyland cypress is a sterile hybrid and must be propagated by individual cutting.. The foliage of the Leyland cypress varies somewhat from one cultivar to the next.. But in general it tends to be arranged in irregularly flat planes with a dark green to gray color.. The shoots branch repeatedly and have a contrasting mahogany color except at the tips.. The trees have little aroma.. The bark of the Leyland cypress is characterized by a skin-like texture.. It is quite delicate.. Care should be exercised to ensure that it does not tear while being cut.. Arizona Cypress.. Cupressus arizonica.. Greene.. The Arizona cypress is a steeple shaped tree with a pale-green to gray-green color.. The leaves are extremely tiny and quite plentiful.. They lay close to the branchlet surface in a scale like arrangement and are about 0.. 1 inches long.. The bark is thin and delicate with a reddish brown color.. It splits into strips along  ...   to 3 in length.. They are relatively short when compared to those of other pines.. Eastern White Pine.. Pinus strobus.. L.. White pine is considered to be the largest pine in the United States.. Leaves (needles) are soft, flexible and bluish-green to silver green in color and are regularly arranged in bundles of five.. Needles are 2 1/2-5 inches long and are usually shed at the end of the second growing season.. Needle retention is good to excellent.. White pine has very little aroma, but, conversely, is reported to result in fewer allergic reactions than do some of the more aromatic species.. Bark on young trunks and branches is smooth and tends to be greenish-brown in color.. On older trunks, the bark becomes dark gray and shallowly fissured.. Eastern Redcedar.. Juniperus virginiana.. The branches of the eastern redcedar are compact and form a pyramidal crown, except in older trees.. The leaves are usually arranged in opposing pairs along the branchlets.. They are a dark shiny green color.. The bark is reddish brown with a tendency to peel in long fibrous strips.. This tree has a wonderful aroma, but the foliage tends to stick its handler.. Gloves are recommended for handling.. Photographs and details provided courtesy of the National Christmas Tree Association and Clarke Gernon of.. Shady Pond Tree Farm in Pearl River, Louisiana..

  • Title: Christmas Tree Care
    Descriptive info: When a Christmas tree is cut, over half of its weight is water.. With proper care, you can maintain the quality of your displayed trees.. Below are a number of tips relating to the care of displayed trees.. Displaying trees in water in a traditional reservoir type stand is the most effective way of maintaining their freshness and minimizing needle loss problems.. Make a fresh cut to remove about a 1/2-inch thick disk of wood from the base of the trunk before putting the tree in the stand.. Make the cut perpendicular to the stem axis.. Do not cut the trunk at an angle or into a v-shape which makes it far more difficult to hold the tree in the stand and also reduces the amount of water available to the tree.. Once home, place the tree in water as soon as possible.. Most species can go 6 to 8 hours after cutting the trunk and still take up water.. Do not bruise the cut surface or get it dirty.. If needed, trees can be temporarily stored for several days in a cool location.. Place the freshly cut trunk in a bucket that is kept full of water.. To display trees indoor, use a stand with an adequate water holding capacity for the tree.. As a general rule, stands should provide 1 quart of  ...   make sure that the level of water does not go below the base of the tree.. With many stands, there can still be water in the stand even though the base of the tree is no longer submerged in water.. Drilling a hole in the base of the trunk does not improve water uptake.. Use of lights that produce low heat, such as miniature lights, will reduce drying of the tree.. Always inspect light sets prior to placing them on the tree.. If worn, replace with a new set.. Do not overload electrical circuits.. Always turn off the tree lights when leaving the house or when going to bed.. Monitor the tree for freshness.. After Christmas or if the tree is dry, remove it from the house.. Many communities recycle Christmas trees.. Support the effort to stabilize erodible areas, build fish habitat or provide mulch and other products or uses.. by participating in local programs.. Be sure to remove of any decorations, disposable stands, plastic and etc.. Never burn any part of a Christmas tree in a wood stove or fireplace.. Prepared by Dr.. Gary Chastagner and Dr.. Eric Hinesley.. Edited by the Scientific Research Committee of the National Christmas Tree Association..

  • Title: Real Christmas Trees vs. Artificial Trees
    Descriptive info: Keeping it REAL!.. It s the natural choice.. Where do REAL trees come from and how does Christmas tree farming affect the environment?.. In the past, most Christmas trees came from the forest; today approximately 98% are grown on Christmas tree plantations.. Most southern grown Christmas trees take 4-5 years to reach marketable heights.. During that time, farmers work very hard caring for their trees.. Trees must be fertilized, protected from insects, and pruned two to three times annually.. Mowing is required to reduce unwanted competition during the summer months.. While Christmas trees are growing, they add oxygen to the atmosphere and provide habitat for wildlife.. Real trees are a renewable, recyclable resource.. Once a tree has been harvested and the Christmas season is over, the trunk and branches can be used as mulch for gardens, parks or in animal stalls.. The mulch provides a protective barrier for the roots  ...   beds.. Sunk into private fish ponds, the trees make excellent refuge and feeding area for fish.. Click.. here.. to view a short video on the wetlands restoration efforts of the Jefferson Parish Christmas Tree Marsh Restoration Project.. Where do fake or artificial trees come from and how do they affect the environment?.. Most artificial trees (85%) in the U.. S.. are imported from China.. As quoted from the National Christmas Tree Association: Artificial trees are a petroleum based product that consume vast resources during fabrication.. A burden to the environment, artificial trees are not biodegradable and will remain in landfills for centuries after disposal.. The average usable life span of an artificial tree is only six years.. Go ahead, support an American farmer and make your Christmas a REAL Christmas.. Our farmers thank you.. to visit the National Christmas Tree Association s website for a comparison of REAL and artificial trees..
