Tree information abridged from
Fir (Abies balsamea) is a North American fir, native to
most of eastern and central Canada (Newfoundland west to
central Alberta) and the northeastern United States (Minnesota
east to Maine, and south in the Appalachian Mountains to
This tree provides food for moose, American red squirrels,
crossbills and chickadees, as well as shelter for moose,
snowshoe hares, white-tailed deer, ruffed grouse and other
small mammals and songbirds. The needles are eaten by some
lepidopteran caterpillars, for example the Io moth.
pungens, also known as the Blue Spruce or Colorado Blue
Spruce, is a species of spruce native primarily to the Western
and North eastern United States, and south-central Eastern
P. pungens is a medium-sized coniferous evergreen tree growing
to 82–98 ft tall, exceptionally to 151 ft tall, and
with a trunk diameter of up to 4 ft 11". The bark is
thin and gray, with narrow vertical furrows. The crown is
conic in young trees, becoming cylindric in older trees.
The shoots are stout, orange-brown.
Picea pungens and its many cultivars are cultivated as ornamental
trees, and it is among the most widely planted ornamental
spruces in gardens and parks. It is also grown for the cut
Christmas tree industry.
The name 'Canaan Fir' derives from
one of its native localities, the Canaan Valley in West
Virginia. Some botanists regard this variety as a natural
hybrid between balsam fir and Fraser fir (Abies fraseri),
which occurs further south in the Appalachian mountains.
Varieties of the species are very popular as Christmas trees,
particularly in the northeastern United states. The resin
is used to produce Canada balsam, and was traditionally
used as a cold remedy and as a glue for glasses, optical
instrument components, and for preparing permanent mounts
of microscope specimens. The wood is milled for framing
lumber, siding and pulped for paper manufacture.
The Canaan fir will grow up to 50 ft tall and 15 ft wide,
and has the traditional evergreen shape and a very nice
are medium-size to extremely large evergreen trees, 70–390
ft tall (although only Coast Douglas-firs reach such great
height). The leaves are flat, soft, linear, 0.8–1.6"long,
generally resembling those of the firs, occurring singly
rather than in fascicles; they completely encircle the branches,
which can be useful in recognizing the species. The female
cones are pendulous, with persistent scales (unlike true
firs), and are distinctive in having a long tridentine (three-pointed)
bract that protrudes prominently above each scale (it resembles
the back half of a mouse, with two feet and a tail).
The common name Douglas-fir honors David Douglas, the Scottish
botanist who first introduced it into cultivation at Scone
Palace in 1827. Douglas is known for introducing many North
American native conifers to Europe.
Fraser Fir is a small evergreen coniferous tree growing
to between 30 and 50 feet tall (rarely to 80 ft) with a
trunk 16 to 20 inches across (rarely up to 30"). The
crown is conical, with straight branches either horizontal
or angled 40° upward from the trunk; it is dense when
the tree is young, but becomes more open as it ages. The
bark is thin and smooth, gray-brown with numerous resin
blisters on young trees, becoming fissured and scaly with
age. The foliage is strongly turpentine-scented.
The leaves are needle-like, arranged spirally on the twigs
but twisted at the base to spread in two rows.
grandis (Grand Fir) is a fir native to the Pacific Northwest
and Northern California of North America, occurring at altitudes
of sea level to 1,800 m. It is a major constituent of the
Grand Fir/Douglas Fir Ecoregion of the Cascade Range.
The tree typically grows from 40-70 m. There are two varieties,
the taller Coast Grand Fir, found west of the Cascade Mountains,
and the shorter Interior Grand Fir, found east of the Cascades.
It was first discovered in 1831 by David Douglas.
The inner bark of the grand fir was used by some Plateau
Indian tribes for treating colds and fever. The foliage
has an attractive, citrus-like scent, and is sometimes used
for Christmas decorations in the United States, including
Christmas trees. It is also planted as an ornamental tree
in large parks.
Picea meyeri (Meyer's Spruce) is
a species of spruce native to certain provinces in China.
It is a medium-sized evergreen tree growing to 30 m tall,
and with a trunk diameter of up to 0.8 m. The leaves are
needle-like, 13-25 mm long, rhombic in cross-section,
bluish-green with conspicuous stomatal lines. The cones
are cylindric, maturing pale brown 5-7 months after pollination,
and have stiff, smoothly rounded scales.
It is occasionally planted as an ornamental tree; its
popularity is increasing in the eastern United States,
where it is being used to replace Blue Spruce, which is
more disease-prone in the humid climate there. The wood
is similar to that of other spruces, but the species is
too rare to be of economic value.
Abies nordmanniana, the Nordmann Fir, is a fir native to
the mountains west and east of the Black Sea, in Turkey,
Georgia, Russian Caucasus and northern parts of Armenia.
Current distribution of the Nordmann Fir is associated with
the forest refugia that existed during the Ice Age at the
eastern and southern Black Sea coast.
It is a large evergreen coniferous tree growing to 60 m
tall and with a trunk diameter of up to 2 m. In the Western
Caucasus Reserve, some specimens have been reported to be
78 m and even 85 m tall, the tallest trees in Europe.
Like all members of the white pine group, Pinus subgenus
Strobus, the leaves ('needles') are in fascicles (bundles)
of five (rarely 3 or 4), with a deciduous sheath. They are
flexible, bluish-green, finely serrated, and 2–5"
long, and persist for usually about 18 months.
Mature trees can easily be 200 to 250 years old. Some white
pines live over 400 years. A tree growing near Syracuse,
New York was dated to 458 years in the late 1980s and trees
in both Wisconsin and Michigan have approached 500 years

If you are purchasing your tree for
the very first time, here are some helpful hints to prolong
it's beauty and sustainability.
Research your tree. Some tree varieties hold needles
far longer than others.
2. Make sure your tree can fit on the car for the ride
home and in your house once it is home.
3. Select a fresh tree without excessive needle loss.
Some interior loss is to be expected and occurs on trees still
planted firmly in the ground. And, when you take it home, keep
it out of the sun and wind in a cool location, such as an unheated
porch or garage. Then, when you decide the time to decorate
is right, make a one inch cut at the base of the trunk and place
it in a bucket of warm water. Bring inside after the tree soaks
up the water. Place in the stand full with water.
4. Place your tree away from heat sources that will
prematurely dry it out such as fireplaces, heat vents and radiators.
Also, place away from swinging doors that may touch the tree.
5. Always keep the stand full with water. A
seal of sap will develop if the tree is without water for more
than four hours, necessitating you to re-cut the base of the
tree. Avoid all this work. Keep the stand full of water. The
tree will absorb more than a gallon the first day and one or
more quarts thereafter. Water keeps the needles from dropping
and helps the tree to retain its fragrance.
6. Recycle your tree. Place the tree in the
yard with suet. The birds will thank you for the fancy dinner
