Why do Christmas trees not smell anymore?

Pine, cedar, and hemlock all retain a strong, pleasing smell after they have been cut. A fir or spruce tree may not have as strong a smell or may lose its scent more quickly. In fact, some people strongly dislike the odor of spruce. Less odor is released because the tree has an undamaged trunk and branches.

Is a balsam fir a good Christmas tree?

Balsam fir. Fraser firs may be fantastic trees, but Balsam fir trees are the O.G. One drawback: The branches are a bit more flexible than the Fraser firs, so keep the ornaments light. Luckily, they retain their splendor, fragrance, and needles arguably just as well.
