Latin: Abies fraseri

Other common names: Fraser fir

Mature Height: 40-60 ft.

Soil / Climate: Prefers moist, well drained soils. Full sun is best. prefers cooler climates.Notes: The Fraser Fir is a small evergreen coniferous tree.Used extensively for ornamental and Christmas tree purposes.  Buds later than Balsam fir, and thus more tolerant of early spring frosts. Does better in dry conditions than Balsam. Easily transplanted with root pruning. Its mild fragrance, shape strong limbs, and ability to retain its soft needles (which do not prick easily when hanging ornaments) for a long time when cut make it one of the best trees for this purpose.

Wildlife: Red squirrels like the seeds and buds. 

Cold Stream Farm supplies Fraser Fir trees which are grown as bare root seedlings and transplants and sold both wholesale and retail with no minimum order.
