Balsam Fir


Abies balsamea
Bundle of 25
8”-12” Transplant


Balsam Fir is the best conifer to plant in shady areas, where it is most tolerant. With a moderate to rapid growth rate, its mature height is 40—60 feet and crown spread is 20—35 feet with shallow wide spreading roots. It prefers medium soils, loams, silt loams, and clay loams, but will grow more slowly in gravelly sands and peat swamps. Wildlife uses as a cover, especially in severe weather, but is a target for damage by sapsuckers. Do not plant near power lines.
