[a.k.a White Fir]
Shipping first will be our larger 3yr old 7-12″ Concolor Fir plug seedlings [pictured above] till sold out, then switching to the new crop of smaller 2yr old 4-8″ Concolors [pictured below]. If you choose to delay shipping, you may get the newer crop instead…first shipped is first served!
Concolor Fir plug seedlings (a.k.a. White Fir) can be planted using a cordless drill and any old dull rusty drill bit you have lying around [see planting videos]. This species is somewhat similar in overall shape and general appearance to the Colorado Blue Spruce, meaning it is a very attractive tree with lots of uses from privacy to ornamentation. Concolor Fir plug seedlings, however, feature a medium greenish blue color, with needles which are quite long and very soft. Concolor Fir are fast growing, can grow as high as 70 feet and live over 300 years.
Concolor Fir plug seedlings are widely used as ornamental trees and thrive all over the Eastern US, and grow naturally from the Rocky Mountains all the way to the West Coast. The seed cones of Concolor Fir plug seedlings, once mature, are about 4 inches long on average, and point up instead of down as with most other evergreens. Concolor Fir are shade tolerant, and grow on both moist loamy soils and drier sandy soils, and provide good privacy due to their dense foliage.

PLANT IN RECORD TIME:
Watch how to plant evergreen seedling plugs faster and with less effort than any other type of “bare root” evergreen tree. With just a cordless drill, a garden cart or wheelbarrow, a 5 gallon bucket of water, and any old/dull/rusty 1 inch drill bit you have lying around, you can realistically plant one plug seedling per minute. Your back will thank us later 🙂
These specific plug seedlings are available and shipping now. If you’d like to delay shipment, please specify that date in a follow up email after placing your order. However, shipping season for these specific evergreen trees pauses in mid-December 2018 and resumes in mid-January 2019, and continues through the end of May 2019 or till sold out.
