[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.). Fraser Fir plug seedlings are almost always the first species to sell out year after year.
NOTE: March/April shipments of this species of plug seedling will be 3-6″ tall as pictured, but shipments after May 1 will be approx 5-10″ tall. If you would like a May shipment, please send a follow up email after ordering, or reply to your automated receipt, requesting the larger size at the later date.
FOR SALE, SHIPPING STARTS MID APRIL MAY 2021
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.
Fraser 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 Fraser Fir farther south if in areas of higher elevation.Individual Packaging Options:
Plug seedlings are grouped together in bundles for shipping, but we offer individual plastic packaging, eco-friendly packaging, and cotton gift bag packaging for all sizes of plug seedlings, sold separately in matching quantities. These individual packaging services are available for plug seedlings only.
Fraser Fir are 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.
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 🙂
