Balsam Fir

The balsam fir is a native evergreen well-adapted to the cold climates of the northern United States and Canada. Its symmetrical spire-like crown, shining dark green color, and spicy fragrance have made it a favorite Christmas tree for hundreds of years. In the landscape, this fir is used as a specimen as wells as apart of a screen or windbreak. This tree grows at a medium rate, with height increases of approx 12" per year. Full sun and partial shade are best for this tree, meaning it prefers a minimum of four hours of direct, unfiltered sunlight each day. The balsam fir prefers moist, cool, well-drained, acidic soil but will tolerate some salt.  The balsam fir grows to a height of 45–75' and a spread of 20–25' at maturity. Grows best in zones 3–5.
