Legend has it that British monk, St. Boniface, first introduced “Christmas Trees” to Germany in the 7th century. In America, Christmas Trees were seen as early as 1747, and by the 1920’s, the decorated Christmas Tree custom was nearly universal throughout the country. Today, millions of people from many nations participate in this centuries-old tradition! Douglas-Fir is one of the world's most impressive trees. One noted naturalist called it "the highest expression of tree greatness in our time." Indeed, the Douglas-Fir species forms some of the tallest and most magnificent forests in the world, dominating millions of square miles of wild forest in the West. Widely cultivated abroad, Douglas-Fir, with its sweet fragrance and wonderful symmetry, is cherished in America as a prime Christmas Tree species.
