We’re Very Picky About Evergreens

Maine is 90% forested, about 95 billion trees in all, and half of them are balsam and spruce. So we can be extremely picky about choosing just the right evergreens for our wreaths. When we take to the woods to gather greenery, only thick, healthy boughs of certain species are selected for our holiday decorations.

Traditional Maine balsam wreath from L.L.Bean


We build a better wreath

For the very best wreath, we consider the four Fs: fullness, fragrance, freshness and festivity. It must be lush, with a lovely scent, have lasting vibrancy and be cheerfully decorated, preferably with natural accents.

Balsam centerpiece for your Christmas table

Our Traditional Wreath is handcrafted to our exacting specifications in Down East Maine with local balsam and decorated pinecones, our state flower. It’s overflowing with Christmas spirit and makes a merry gift that can be enjoyed all season.

    I sent my Aunt in Pa., the evergreen centerpiece. They delivered it this week to her and I called her just a few mins ago and the evergreen needles are already falling out….I am very disappointed. because this is not the first time I ordered the wreaths at Christmas. She said she watered it so I don’t understand why there falling out so soon. I love LLBean, but this is very disappointing. I thought you would like to know since LLBean has such a great reputation. Thank you.

    My sister called this morning from Florida! She received her wreath and absolutely loves it! She especially loves the hook that came with it as it makes for easy hanging…Thanks LLBean!
