Abies baslamea possesses all the qualifications commonly sought in a Christmas tree:

  1. It is one of the most upright-growing and symmetrical of conifers.
  2. Its needles will hold, without shedding, for weeks in a warm house.
  3. It will spread the woodsy fragrance of the Appalachians throughout your home during the holiday season.

Add to this the fact that you can purchase a balsam fir Christmas tree with a clear conscience. This species is grown specifically for cutting, usually on land that is unsuitable for raising food crops.

Abies balsamea also produces a resin beneath its bark that is used for mounting slides.

In nature, Balsam fir trees can be found in Newfoundland, the Canadian Northwest and the Eastern United States as far south as Virginia. Trees growing in the U.S. range in height from 30-90 feet at maturity, depending on location and growing conditions.

The short, flat needles of the Balsam fir are rounded (sometimes notched) at the tips. They range in length from 3/4 to 1 1/2 inch. The fresh foliage is dark green on top with a silver underside.

It takes nearly a decade for a Balsam fir to reach a height of 7 feet.
