For many Lunenburg families, Christmas trees and wreath-making are a way of life. Our cool, moist climate is ideal for balsam fir, known for lush foliage, fragrant aroma, and superior needle retention. Nova Scotia Balsam became the tree of choice throughout much of North America, and by the 1950s annual exports exceeded 3.5 million. Half of those came from Lunenburg County—officially recognized as the 'Balsam Fir Christmas Tree Capital of the World’ in 1995.
