Concolor Fir grow quickly, and reach as high as 70 feet tall over 300 years. The tallest of them are found in never-been-logged old growth forests in the American West. They are a “climax species”, meaning they are one of the last species to move into an ecosystem disturbed by fire, avalanche, etc. Once they move in, Concolor Fir tend to dominate that ecosystem until the next disturbance comes along. Concolor Fir are closely related to Grand Fir [Abies grandis], but we do not sell that species.
Concolor Fir have gorgeous soft needles about an inch long, and produce a pleasant aroma. It produces cones about 4 inches long on average, and point up instead of down as with most other evergreens. Concolor are shade tolerant, and grow on both moist loamy soils and drier sandy soils. This species is easy to care for if soil moisture is kept fairly constant and are not planted in full sun in an open field.
