Christmas Trees

In 1995, Lunenburg County was officially recognized as the 'Balsam Fir Christmas Tree Capital of the World'. Nova Scotia's cool, moist climate is ideal for growing balsam fir. Because of its lush foliage, fragrant aroma and superior needle retention, Nova Scotia Balsam soon became the tree of choice throughout much of North America. By the 1950's annual exports had exceeded 3.5 million, half of which came from Lunenburg County. Christmas trees and wreath making soon became a way of life of many Lunenburg County families and the knowledge and tradition was passed down from generation to generation.
