Canaan Fir Transplants

[Abies balsamea var phanerolepis]
[a.k.a. West Virginia Balsam Fir]

Canaan Fir is very similar to the Balsam Fir and the Fraser Fir in appearance, grow zones and other characteristics, making it a very desirable ornamental tree and Christmas tree. It stands out from the often troublesome Fraser in that the Canaan Fir can handle wetter soils and is less affected by root disease...making it an acceptable substitute for Fraser Fir in problematic environments such as poorly draining areas. This species likes richer, darker soils with ample water.

The Canaan Fir is naturally found in isolated populations at higher elevations. This may be why it is slower to break bud than Fraser Fir or Balsam Fir, making it less prone to damage from a late frost. If you've been watching the weather since 2010, this alone is a valuable characteristic to have, since gorgeous trees damaged by frost freezes are not gorgeous trees. This species will reach heights of up to 50ft with a nice pyramidal shape under normal circumstances, and provides excellent privacy and wind protection due to its dense growth.

The Canaan Fir is named for the Canaan Valley in West Virginia. It is an excellent alternative to Balsam Fir and Fraser Fir in most situations.

Order by 9am EST and you'll **probably** get same day shipping on these specific trees as long as [a] our shipping schedule for the week is not already full, and [b] your trees will reach you by Friday [we don't want your box of trees sitting in a truck all weekend, potentially baking in the sun]. See our shipping page for more details. If you'd like to order now to guarantee availability but postpone your shipment to a later date, please specify that date in a follow up email after placing your order. Shipping season for these specific "bare root" trees closes around Thanksgiving. If you need trees shipped later than that, please have a look at our various sizes and species of plug transplants and plug seedlings, which can be shipped at almost any time of year and are ridiculously easy to plant.

We offer cotton gift bag packaging and custom pendants for all sizes of bare root seedlings and transplants, sold separately in matching quantities.
