Fraser Fir

Description:

Fraser fir is a uniformly pyramid-shaped tree with strong branches that are turned slightly upward to give the tree a compact appearance.

Leaves are 1/2 to one inch long, have a broad circular base, and are usually dark green on the upper surface and lighter on the lower surface. On lower branches, leaves are two-ranked (occurring in two opposite rows). On upper twigs, leaves tend to curl upward forming a more "U-shaped" appearance.

The combination of form, needle retention, dark blue-green color, pleasant scent and excellent shipping characteristics has led to Fraser fir being a most popular Christmas tree species.It requires from 7 to 10 years in the field to produce a 6-7 feet tree.
