Don't know about white pines...........the popular ones in england for christmas are Norway spruce, blue spruce, lodgepole pine, scotts pine , noble fir and nordman fir. There is also a spencer which is a cross between a spruce and fir thats getting popular in this country too.
My personal favorite is the Nordman fir, Floor to ceiling with two sides cut back to get it into the corner. Smells nice too.
I'll pop over and get one off you,
I'll make sure you get the best..........
