 Grobe's Indoor Christmas Tree Country 
Fraser Fir

Grobe's Indoor Christmas Tree Country has been a Christmas tradition for many Waterloo Region families for over 45 years.

Commencing in November and extending until Christmas Eve, we offer the finest fresh cut Christmas trees as well as quality constructed everlasting (artificial) trees, choice florist quality poinsettias, unique gifts for everyone on your list, tree trim, fresh wreaths, garlands, boughs, and much, much more.

Browse in comfort in our indoor Christmas tree showroom and select your own tree from 5 varieties of Christmas tree (Fraser Fir, Scotch Pine, White Pine, Estate Balsam Fir and Natural Balsam Fir - click here to see samples), and enjoy a Hot Chocolate or Coffee while you browse.

We offer carry out service, free cutting of the end of your tree to save you the work at home, and, for a small donation to KidsAbility, we can also bale your tree in mesh wrap for easier transport and placement in your home.

Why Are Grobe's Poinsettias Better?
It's simple! Our plants are not picked over grower remnants or bench grade plants. At Grobe's we evaluate varieties, make our recommendations, monitor the crop throughout the growing season, and then each plant is selected as the best of the crop when it is at it's very best for you. Here are the varieties we have available.

Potted Trees
Does Grobe's Offer Live Christmas Trees?
Yes of course!
But ours are measurably better for use as a live Christmas Tree.
Why?
A 'fall dug' potted tree that isn't yet rooted isn't much different than a fresh cut tree. It just has pot of soil to hold it up instead of a stand.
Both trees don't have much in the way of roots to help them deal with being inside a warm home, and then outside after Christmas.
Grobe trees are are all spring harvested and are fully rooted when purchased.
Mother Nature never intended live conifers to be brought inside and then outside during Canadian winters.
But we believe we have a method that offers the greatest chance of success.
VISIT US SOON FOR ALL THE DETAILS.

Why Are Grobe's Fresh Xmas Trees Better?
It's simple! Our Christmas trees are graded three times for quality. We inspect the tree in the field during the growing season prior to harvest, it's graded at the time of cutting, and then we further inspect and grade the tree for size, fullness, quality of top, and variety prior to sale.

How Long Does A Cut Tree Last?
Fraser Fir - up to 35 days
Scotch Pine - up to 20 days

White Pine - up to 18 days
Balsam Fir - up to 14-21 days
Any Spruce - up to 8 days
