Christmas tree production in North Carolina is made up of two distinct regions – the mountains where Fraser fir is predominantly grown, and the piedmont and coastal plain where a wide variety of conifers are grown including Leyland cypress, Virginia pine, white pine, and eastern red cedar. Christmas tree research and extension programs at North Carolina State University cover all aspects of production and marketing and are collaboratively conducted across several departments in both the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (CALS) and the College of Natural Resources (CNR). Specialists are housed on the main campus in Raleigh as well as at the Mountain Horticultural Research and Extension Center in Mills River near Asheville, though the work is conducted throughout the state wherever Christmas trees are grown. The success of these programs is due to the efforts of the local County Extension Agents and a team of interested, innovative growers that have supported research through the years. Some sections of the Research Publications have listings for both Fraser fir and other species.
