Christmas Tree Balsam

  • $7500

The Balsam Fir's shining dark green color and spicy fragrance have made it a favorite Christmas tree choice for hundreds of years! Besides being a lovely addition to your holiday decor, here's a few fun facts about the Balsam Fir.

  • Features lustrous dark green needles ⅝–1" in length with 2 white or gray stomatic bands on the underside. The tips are blunt, rounded or notched.
  • Yields cones 2–4" in length that start out dark purple, turning gray-brown and resinous at maturity. Once the seeds are ripe, the scales fall off, leaving only the central axis of the cone. Seed crops occur at 2–4 year intervals.
  • Has a narrow, symmetrical, spire-shaped, dense crown.
  • Develops blisters of oily resin (balsam) along the trunk.
  • Grows in a pyramidal shape.
  • Does best in colder climates.
