Choosing your tree

Select a living Christmas tree as you’d choose plants for your garden―go with what you love, and have room for.

You can use the same tree in a container for four to seven years, depending on how fast it grows. If you intend to plant it outdoors eventually, choose a variety that thrives in your climate. And be sure that you have a sunny spot for it.

Look for landscape-grade trees (not sheared), in 5-, 7-, and 15-gallon cans.
