Canaan Fir vs Black Hills Spruce

Abies balsamea phanerolepis

Picea glauca var. densata

Canaan Fir
Black Hills Spruce

Canaan Fir, which is closely related to Balsam Fir, is known for its open-growing patterns and strong branches.

Canaan Fir is highly adaptable to many soil conditions and thrives in both shaded areas or direct sunlight. It is commonly used for Christmas tree farming or reforestation.

This rugged landscape tree remains green year-round.

We do not produce this tree each year but do have a number of great substitutes.

Black Hills Spruce is a subspecies of White Spruce native to the Black Hills of South Dakota. It has a strongly conical form, slower growth rate and denser foliage than typical white spruce, making it preferable as a specimen tree for smaller suburban lawns. It also responds well to pruning, and can be used as a hedge or even bonsai.

The Black Hills Spruce is a long time favourite of our Seed Plant Manager. She sees hundreds of varieties of different trees, but this one is her favourite.
