Balsam Fir
European Larch

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.

The European Larch is a large deciduous conifer that, like most larches, drops its needles before winter. Known for the soft green foliage that turns a stunning golden yellow in the fall. While young, it has a pyramidal shape with horizontal branching and drooping branches, but becomes more irregular as it matures.

The European Larch is an important timber tree in Europe.
