In our country where Christmas is observed from September to January, it's never too late to buy a pretty new tree. If you're planning to get one just in time for Noche Buena, you may want to learn more about the different kinds of trees in the market today so you can choose the best one for your space. In a see of towering trees in different colors and sizes, you can simply look at the leaves. Be guided below:

1. Holly Vine


Popular in thr 70s, it features distinct, pointed leaves. Watch for these traits when you go shopping. Holly Vine leaves are commonly used as trimmings and extra decor.

2. Woodland


If you're familiar with the traditional fresh Christmas tree, you'll notice that Woodland looks quite the same. It also has pine needles in clusters per branch.

3. Stephanotis


Also called as the "wedding plant," Stephanotis is often used for wreaths.

4. Downswept


As its name suggests, Downswept describes the natural form of its spruce needles. Tall and narrow, this tree is the perfect choice for homes with high ceilings.

5. Cypress


The flat, thick leaves are the most distinguishing features of the Bald Cypress Tree.

6. Plastic Spruce


A tree with no plant reference, plastic spruce is a common option available in stores—sometimes in different colors and trimmings.

7. Regular Vinyl Spruce


If you look closely, you will see that this tree has vinyl strips gathered with wire as leaves. It's one of the cheapest types of leaves in the market.

8. Canadian Pine


This tree often comes with pinecones and has long needles in each cluster. You will also notice that the shade lightens at the tip of the needles.
