What kind of live Christmas tree can survive in Central Oregon?


Not sure about what species of live Christmas trees are available in your area. Ponderoas pine is seldom grown as a Christmas tree, but you may be able to find a potted tree and Ponderosa is native to Sisters. I assume you will be able to provide some water to the tree until it is established.

My suggestions of species (in order of anticipated survival) would be-

  1. Grand fir
  2. Nordmann or Turkish fir
  3. Douglas-fir
