Canaan Fir
Cooks Blue Balsam Fir

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.

Cooks Blue Balsam Fir is a blue tinged selection of Balsam Fir. Preferring slightly acidic, moist, well-drained soils, this beautiful tree is loved among Christmas tree growers due to its striking color and pyramidal shape.

As Cooks Blue Balsam Fir matures, you’ll notice that the color of the needles will intensify. Keep in mind this selection was grown from seed and the needles can vary in color from shades of green to blue. Nitrogen rich soil helps the needles retain their vibrant color.

Please be aware that this variety does not do well in intense heat, drying winds, or seasonal drought.
