The “Cadillac” of Christmas Trees, Fraser firs are popular for their bluish-green color, excellent needle retention, pleasant scent, and strong branches capable of holding heavy ornaments. The tree has springy branches that cascade downward, creating the perfect platform to decorate your tree.
The Fraser Fir was named for John Fraser, a Scottish botanist who explored the southern Appalachian Mountains of North Carolina in the late 1700’s. The species is sometimes called Southern balsam or Southern balsam fir. Locally, Fraser fir is known as “She balsam” because of the resin filled blisters on the tree’s trunk. Red spruce, often associated with Fraser fir, is called “He balsam” and lacks the distinctive blisters. In many respects, the Fraser Fir and the Balsam Fir are quite similar; some botanists even suggest that the two were once the same species, differing only in their geographical dispersion. The Appalachian mountains are the only seed source for Fraser fir, which is why it grows best at in the mountains of North Carolina and Virginia.

Concolor firs (or White firs) are native to the western United States and can be found from the Rocky Mountains in Colorado and New Mexico to the Coast Range in California and Oregon. They are often planted among evergreens to offset the darker evergreen color. The Concolor Fir grows further south than any North American fir species and is also the most drought tolerant. This later trait may be the reason it has the best needle retention of any species commonly grown for Christmas trees. In addition, the Concolor’s needles are longer than most firs – averaging 2-3″ in length and are quite soft while retaining enough stiffness for ornament holding.
We have a limited quantity of Concolor fir available. Please contact us for more information.
