Fraser Fir

Abies fraseri

The Fraser Fir is the Cadillac of Christmas trees, grown for both personal and commercial production.  Known for it's classic shape and notable fragrance, this conifer is the cousin to the Balsam Fir.  The biggest difference is that the Fraser Fir has a little fatter stem and needles and has a rich green color that lasts a bit longer than the Balsam Fir.  The Fraser Fir exhibits a pointed crown and silvery white aromatic foliage.  This is simply a beautiful tree and ours are premium quality.  Grows best in moist but well drained, fertile soil which is very acidic and somewhat protected from drying winds.

Product questions

No questions yet. Be the first to ask the question!
  • This evergreen does not tolerate heavy or wet soils, preferring fertile loamy and sandy soils instead.  Soil PH levels in the range of 5.5-5.8 are ideal
  • The branches on the Fraser Fir turn slightly upward and the tree exhibits a dark blue-green color with a silvery underside
  • The Fraser Fir makes an excellent choice for a Christmas tree because their strong branches support heavy ornaments
  • The branches of this evergreen are more dense when the tree is young and become more open as the tree ages
  • The needles on the Fraser Fir are flattened and 3/4" long
  • It is common to see the Fraser Fir growing along side of Yellow Birch, Paper Birch and Sugar Maple
  • Deer do enjoy browsing on the soft needles of the Fraser Fir so planting in an area where deer populations are low or providing protection is important to the tree's long term success

Fun fact:  The Fraser Fir is named after John Fraser (1750-1811), a botanist from Scotland who explored the southern Appalachian Mountains in the late 18th century.

Common Uses:

  • Christmas tree production
  • Ornamental and specimen tree
  • Watershed and water quality protection

Like most conifers, the Fraser Fir gives many species of birds a place for nesting, roosting and general protection from winter weather.  Red Squirrels also eat the seeds from the cones that are produced as well as the terminal buds of the Fraser Fir.  Deer do browse on the Fraser Fir which enjoy consuming their soft needles.
