Introducing the "Burton Blue" Noble Fir

Grown for Swansons Nursery by Burton Family Farms

 

Clustered on the misty slopes of southwest Washington, the unique "Burton Blue" Noble Fir was first developed by Charley Burton as a strikingly blue version of this popular variety. Charley was the first to introduce the Noble Fir as a Christmas tree to the USA in 1949, and he has passed his passion for growing beautiful trees on to his children.

 

Natural Shapes

At Swansons Nursery in Seattle our buyers work with farmers to source more open and natural shaped trees – as our customers have requested for years. They have a fresh-from-the-mountain look that is unique from the heavily pruned "cone shape" you'll find elsewhere.

 

Alpine

The most open space between branches. Think Noble Firs & Burton Blues.

Forest Edge

Spacious, but a slightly fuller silhouette.
Some Nobles & Burtons, plus the Nordmann Fir.

Town Square

Our fullest natural cut.
