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 Christmas Blue Spruce is a popular choice for Christmas tree farms due to its strong scent and pyramidal shape. This is a cultivar of the Blue Spruce and is a cold-hardy evergreen tree with grey-blue needles.
