The Slim Christmas tree is often thetree of choice for apartment dwellers, condominium owners, and anyone one else who loves to celebrate Christmas, but has trouble fitting much in their living room after a couch and a television stand. Slim Christmas trees, also known as pencil trees, bring festivity to your home that will give your most rotund Christmas tree a run for its money. And the best part is you won’t have to live a cramped lifestyle for the entire month of December.

As you can see, people with small living spaces certainly don’t need to miss out on celebrating Christmas with the most recognizable hallmark of the season. Slim Christmas tree options abound among boththe artificial Christmas tree and live Christmas tree markets.

Perhaps you’d like to learn a little bit about how live slim trees are grown. Like all Christmas trees, it is a very involved process requiring strict care and maintenance. The average slim tree you’d find on the lot probably took several years to become ready for harvest. Here is a little background on the live Christmas tree industry: An estimated 30 to 35 million Christmas trees are produced for sale in the United States every year. A whopping 98 percent of these Christmas trees are grown on tree farms and plantations across the nation, with Oregon leading all other states as the largest producer of Christmas trees. Christmas trees grow on farms in 49 states, including Hawaii! The only state where they do not grow is Alaska. Alas, the freezing temperatures prevent the trees from thriving.

Christmas trees are cultivated to take shape on these farms, whether full, slim, or pencil. Growers determine tree height by shearing the tip of the tree’s leading shoot, and tapering the sides with shearers to manipulate its shape and density. The fullest Christmas trees have roughly a 90 percent taper, while a slim Christmas treeis tapered to a maximum of 40 percent. Altogether, it takes roughly 12 years for a tree to grow to a height acceptable for sale on tree lots—between six and seven feet.

Growers are careful to produce trees of varying shapes to suit the tastes of diverse customers, but it may still be tough to find a live slim tree that fits your space exactly. But you are in luck; artificial Christmas tree manufacturers of today are also major slim Christmas tree producers, creating numerous options for those in the market for custom trees. Artificial trees can be ordered in an array of widths, heights, and styles, like flocked and pre-lit varieties. These assorted trees even come in a fabulous selection of colors. If you are searing for a fake Christmas tree, make sure to browse the selection available at Artificial Plants and Trees.
