Tree of the Week 

Concolor Fir in a naturalized settingConcolor Fir

Abies concolor--White Fir 


Hardiness Zones: 3 to 7 
Height: 50 ft
Spread: 20 ft
Form: pyramidal 
Type: narrow-leaved evergreen 
Annual Growth Rate: 12 to 18 inches 

Comments: Concolor Fir offers distinctively soft foliage. This tree is a look-alike for Colorado spruce, especially those trees with bluish needles, and has no serious insect or disease problems. Concolor fir can take sun and wind exposure and salt spray on heavily traveled winter roads. It will withstand heat and drought better than most firs but will not tolerate "wet feet." As a Christmas tree, Concolor Fir remains fresh and retains its needles for several weeks if provided with water. Its fragrance is a unique, pleasant citrus-like scent both in the yard and in the home. 

Cultivars: 
'Candicans' - narrow, upright tree with blue needles
