Did you ever want a Christmas Tree that looks like it should be in the White Mountains ? Snow flocked Christmas trees have been around for decades. My father has been setting up a snow flocked Christmas Tree for more than twenty five years.
At Exotic Flowers in Roslindale, we have been making pink, blue, white and even black Christmas trees for years. While incredibly popular on the west coast, snow flocked trees are only favored by few in New England. The snow flock is applied by machine that is hooked up to a garden hose.

Keep in mind, it is best to but Christmas lights with white cords if installing a white snow flocked Christmas tree.
