Balsam Fir

Abies balsamea

The Balsam Fir is an extremely popular choice for both personal and commercial Christmas tree production.  This conifer has shiny soft green needles and shears very nicely.  The Balsam Fir is a favorite for wreath makers, who love to use the fragrant green boughs in their work.  This evergreen exhibits short needles which are 1/2 - 1" in length and cones which measure 2-4" in length.  Pyramidal in shape, this symmetrical fir tree is quite ornamental.  The Balsam Fir is also quite shade tolerant.  Buy your Balsam Fir seedlings from our nursery today!
