Concolor Fir
Did you know?

The cones of Concolor Fir trees (Abies concolor), as well as those of other fir trees, grow vertically on the upper surface of branches. 

Up to 50 feet tall and 30 feet wide
Flowers, Fruit, Foliage
Upright cones emerge as a green color, mature to shades of brown or purple, and grow to be up to 6 inches long. Soft, double-ranked, blue-green needles emit a camphor-like odor when crushed. Branches emerge down to the base of the trunk.
Pests & Diseases
None serious
Landscape Use
Great as a specimen, in natural areas, and as a replacement for unhealthy spruce trees
Care Practices
Plant in moist, rich, sandy, well-drained soil in an area with full sun to light shade. These cold hardy trees tolerate moderate drought, urban pollution, and high temperatures once established, but they do not perform well in humid climates. Do not plant anything too closely to these trees, as they have a very far-spreading root system.
Native Range
Western United States
