Balsam Fir
Grand Fir

Balsam Fir - best known as a "Christmas tree" - doesn't just look great in living rooms; it's a terrific tree for your yard too!

This fir grows tall and narrow. Balsam Fir is cold hardy, shade tolerant, and will thrive in most soil types and moisture levels..

Grand Fir is a large, coniferous evergreen native to the Pacific Northwest of North America. Closely related to the White Fir, this tree has glossy green, needle-like leaves with notched ends. A tall, majestic tree, Grand Fir grows best in drier climates.

We currently have no plans to produce the Grand Fir. However, you will find that we are producing a number of quality alternatives.
