[common misspellings: Frazer Fir, Frasier Fir]
Fraser Fir will develop all of the classic looks of a Christmas tree at maturity, featuring short, soft, dark-green needles with silver undersides. 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.)

This species of true Fir will grow to a maximum height of 50 feet [rarely to 80ft], and will flourish in fertile, rich & sandy soils which are slightly acidic. They must have good drainage to prevent phytophthora root rot and other crown rot diseases.
Abies fraseri are almost always the first species to sell out year after year, as they are famous as Christmas trees for not dropping their needles until long after the holidays. If they are kept properly watered after being freshly cut, needle drop will not start for more than a month!

Fraser Fir are tolerant of shade, but tend to prefer full sun. A good rule of thumb is to plant them from Tennessee north, but you can also plant this species farther south if in areas of higher elevation. Fraser are in fact so similar to Balsam Fir plug seedlings that scientists believe that not too long ago they were one and the same…”not too long ago”, as in tens of thousands of years ago.Individual Packaging Options:
