I'd like to buy a live Christmas tree and then plant it in Sisters. What type of evergreen do you recommend? Thank you.

Deschutes County Oregon

Not sure about what species of live Christmas trees are available in your area. Ponderoas pine is seldom grown as a Christmas tree, but you may be able to find a potted tree and Ponderosa is native to Sisters. I assume you will be able to provide some water to the tree until it is established. My suggestions of speices (in order of anticipated survival) would be-

Grand fir
Nordmann or Turkish fir
Douglas-fir


Thank you. Very helpful.
