Conifers

White Fir

Abies Concolor
Zone 3. 30-50 ft height. 15-30 ft spread. Can grow to 100 ft or more. Conical and branched to the base. Slow to medium growth rate. Bark is smooth on young trees, thickening with old age with deep irregular furrows into thick, horny, flattened ridges. Needles are longest of the true firs and may become 3 in. long. They are broad, flat, and silver blue in color. Cones may become as much as 5 in. long and grow upright on higher limbs and appear to be perched like candles on the tops of the branchlets. Dislikes heavy clay soils. This conifer requires less moisture than other western firs.
