Island Christmas Trees and Wreaths
PEI Christmas trees are a natural, safe and 100 per cent biodegradable part of many Island Christmas traditions.
Producers grow evergreen Christmas trees and make wreaths for local retail outlets and for export to markets in Canada and New England. Some growers also specialize in U-cut operations and they encourage Islanders to come out for a visit and select the perfect locally grown Christmas tree right on the stump.
The province does not provide direct support to Christmas tree growing operations. However, the department does sell balsam fir and other seedlings to growers and provides services such as insect and disease analysis and technical advice to support healthy, productive forests.
