Fresh Christmas Trees

bottomley As we head into the full swing of the holidays, many of our stores* will be selling Fraser Fir trees. These tree comes from family operated Bottomley Evergreens & Farms. Here are some of the reasons why we bring these trees to you, and you can check out the video to learn more about the Bottomley's and their farm.
  • Our trees are fresh from the Blue Ridge Mountain, grown by family-owned and operated Bottomley Evergreens & Farms.
  • With a dark green color, aromatic smell, needle retention, shape and fullness, Fraser Firs hold decorations beautifully.
  • A well-cared-for tree should remain fresh at least three to four weeks!
  • For every tree cut down, Bottomley plants two more trees the following year.
* Bottomley trees are available in stores in our Mid-Atlantic, Rocky Mountain, Southwest, South, Northeast and North Atlantic regions. Our Midwest and Florida region stores will have small "table top" trees. Happy holidays...and don't forget to recycle your tree!

Just put up my artificial tree. It looks great but really lacks the real smell of Christmas. Bought some candles to try to get the scent( best was Yankee Candle "Mistletoe") but still not the same as good old fashioned real tree. Guess i will be at Whole foods this weekend, then redecorating again. Ho Ho Ho

We bought our tree last night and couldn't be more pleased with it! It was hard to see because it was pre-wrapped but when we got it home and opened it it was gorgeous! It is super thick and round. We'll absolutely buy one next year, too!

Beautiful looking tree. Healthy and green BUT.. we have had it in the house for 3 days and the tree does not have any wonderful Christmas Tree smell. I'm disappointed! Wished I had known ahead of time
