It boasts attractive one-inch needles that are silvery-green and soft to the touch, making it the ideal variety for families with pets or young children who tend to handle their tree.”

Coming at second is the Noble Fir. According to, “Noble fir trees are another beloved holiday tree species, featuring deep blue-green needles and cones that showcase trademark spikey bracts. In nature, noble fir trees are the largest varieties (sometimes reaching 260 feet tall), making them a great option if you’re looking for an especially tall tree for an office building or two-story entryway.”

The blue spruce is known for its lovely blue foliage (which can also appear silvery) and thin, pointy needles.”
