The Balsam Fir is a tree that can be found in the vast majority of North American forests.
This tree adorning many homes during the holiday season is usually appreciated for its symmetric pyramidal shape.
It will grow well in many circumstances as it’s considered a real tough one.
Even if its wood is not very popular in the timber trade, this tree has a lot of ornemental qualities. Plant it as specimen or combine it with other congeners to create a clump or an effective hedge that you will appreciate during the wintertime.
