Christmas trees and greens

Freshly cut Christmas trees smelling of stars and snow and pine resin – inhale deeply and fill your soul with wintry night.

Arguably the most iconic and beloved Christmas tradition and symbol is the tree. Regardless if it is large or small, the tree is the lynchpin of the Christmas decorations. Sometimes whole rooms are built around the tree, other times it may be the only Christmas piece in the room. How you select it, decorate it, and display it is entirely personal and there are no wrong answers.
Our Canadian, Premium cut, balsam firs are truly a beautiful tree to behold. As a Christmas tree, balsam fir has several desirable properties. It has a dark-green appearance, long-lasting needles, and attractive form. It also retains its pleasing fragrance. Our trees are sculptured to have perfect form and shape these trees are grown right here in Canada. From 12’ monsters to 4’ cuties you are sure to find the perfect tree for showcasing your decorations.
Boasting the largest outdoor, covered Christmas tree lot in Calgary Golden Acre is proud of our trees and we are sure you will find the one you are looking for right here.


These are the staple of greenery decoration and can stay fresh, fragrant and splendid all season long. Used to make wreaths and to fill planters boughs are a top selling favourite. The cedar boughs fragrance is legendary. The pine is a true traditional look. With silver fir adding the quaint beauty we have all come to expect. Mix these time-honored favourites with some new and unique boughs such as incense cedar, eucalyptus, magnolia and more. Golden Acre is sure to have the bough you’re looking for from respected customary to funky, contemporary choice.


There is literally no wrong way to use garland. Around handrails, over doorways, around hearths, even on tables and around windows, indoors or out garland truly is the gift that keeps giving. Both a gentle accent and a bold statement there is no going wrong with garland. Our garland comes in bulk lengths, so let us know how much you need, and we will custom cut it for you.


Is there anything more traditional than a bold, welcoming wreath on the door? How about one on the table surrounding a poinsettia or a candle? Hung on the stair post? These truly are a symbol of Christmas and embody the festive spirit instantly. Golden Acre carries a range of wreaths in different sizes and styles to fit the aesthetic you need.
