Balsam Fir Seedling Plugs

(a.k.a. Silver Fir, Eastern Fir, Canadian Fir)
(Abies balsamea or Pinus balsamea)

Highly fragrant and very popular as a Christmas tree, the Balsam Fir can grow to heights of 60-90 feet, can grow in partial shade and somewhat swampy soils, and can live for over 200 years. It serves well as a privacy screen or windbreak due to it's fairly average 1 foot annual growth rate combined with its dense foliage. The Balsam Fir's popularity as a Christmas tree cannot be overstated.

The Balsam Fir is so similar to the Fraser Fir that scientists believe that not too long ago [and we're talking millennia here] they were one and the same.

Wildlife rely extensively on this tree for shelter and also for food [mostly the seed], and although deer may eat small amounts, they do not prefer it over other food sources. Martens, hares and songbirds often take refuge in thick Balsam Fir stands.

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 :)
