(Grecian Fir, Greek Fir)

The highlands of Greece reveal stands of this tall evergreen conifer, appropriately known as the Grecian fir. It grows on calcareous and alkaline soils at elevations between 1,800 and 7,000 feet. When mature, the tree's silhouette is a tall, broadly pyramid with horizontal branches.

When young, the Grecian fir has smooth, reddish brown branches, but with age the bark is gray with streaks of pink and brown on fissured, oblong plates. The flattened needles are glossy dark green with a whitish...

(Shensi Fir)

Comprising some 50 tree species from cool areas of the Northern Hemisphere, firs are used worldwide for lumber, pulpwood, Christmas trees, and ornamental plants. In parts of the North Temperate Zone these coniferous evergreens are dominant forest species, important for erosion control and wildlife forage and cover.

Most firs are medium to large, conical trees with a dominant central leader. Their flattened, straight or up-curved needles sit directly on the smooth branchlets (rather than on...

White has a fine-textured symmetrical growth habit, and 'Blue Cloak' becomes a broad pyramid as it matures.

Grow white fir in full to partial sun and a slightly...

Its cones are oblong and held upright on mature branches, occurring only after several decades of growth. Always slow growing, 'Compacta' is densely branched and needled. When young its...
