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.

White Fir is an attractive, cold hardy tree that is known for its excellent adaptation to difficult sites. Also a favorite among Christmas tree growers, this tree has high needle retention, dense foliage, and a beautiful pyramidal shape.

You’ll love the silver blue-green color that pops on a winter landscape. Try planting in your front yard as a stunning specimen or ornamental tree.
