There is not just one kind of Christmas tree. In fact, there are many, and each one has it's own style. The most popular types of natural trees for Christmas are fir, spruce, pine, cedar, and some artificial trees have been modeled after these.
Want something totally traditional? => Fir
The noble fir is likely the most popular type of tree, and for good reason. It is designed in the traditional conical shape, in a bright green hue, and has the densest foliage. However, shorter needles make it easy to decorate without ornaments becoming lost among the needles.
Want something distinctive and stylish? => Spruce
Spruce trees also offer a traditional feel with their lovely shape and bushy branches. Although the branches aren't quite a packed in as with a fir design. However, they are suitably robust for holding up heavier ornaments, and the different lengths mean that you can display some decorations or lights more prominently.
Want something natural and woodsy? => Pine
Pine design trees are increasing in popularity as people are opting for a more natural, less sculpted effect for better realism. While the branches on this tree are sparser than either of the two above, the needles are both longer and grow in clusters, so you still get a full looking tree.
Want something contemporary and eye-catching? => Cedar
Cedars are quite a bit different from the other three trees on this list. They are usually designed smaller and narrower with downward-pointing branches. Opt for these if you want something festive but a little less traditional. They are also great for adding a touch of the holidays to smaller rooms, hallways, or even in the garden.
