Christmas Trees

Standard BNQ 0632-901
Christmas Trees - Classification System

Quebec is one of the largest producers and exporters of Christmas trees in the world, with a market that extends all the way to Central America. However, purchasers demand high quality, and the species of trees sold are numerous. That is why the development of a standard was necessary from the very beginning of the industry. The BNQ 0632-901 standard sets out a commercial classification system that makes it easier to market Christmas trees. The standard applies to all species of conifers sold as Christmas trees, whether they come from cultivated stands, improved natural stands or wild stands. The classification is based on four separate categories and enables the various players to be sure that the quality of the Christmas trees meets the desired criteria.
