[a.k.a. Frazer Fir, Frasier Fir]
The Fraser Fir has classic looks, featuring short, soft, dark-green needles with silver undersides revealed by upturning branches. It is a beautiful ornamental, and is widely considered the finest Christmas tree in North America. (and most commonly misspelled: Frazer Fir, Frasier Fir, Fraser Fur, Frazier Fir, etc.)
The Fraser grows to a maximum height of 80 feet, and will flourish in fertile, rocky & sandy soils which are slightly acidic. In any case, they must have good drainage. They are somewhat tolerant of shade, but prefer full sun. A good rule of thumb is to plant them from Tennessee north, but you can also plant them in areas of higher elevation.
The Fraser Fir is so similar to the Balsam Fir that scientists believe that not too long ago they were one and the same.
PLANT IN RECORD TIME:
Watch how to plant these evergreen seedling plugs faster and with less effort than any other type of “bare root” evergreen seedling. With just a garden cart or wheelbarrow, a jug or three of water, a cordless drill, any old/dull/rusty 1 inch drill bit you have lying around [your own drill bit, we do not provide a free auger with plug seedlings], you can realistically plant at least one plug seedling per minute. Your back will thank us later 🙂
