Introducing the Abies concolor ssp. concolor, also known as the Concolor Fir or White Fir. This beautiful tree species is native to the western United States and stands tall at heights of 130-150 ft., with some exceptional specimens reaching 350 years of age. With its spire-like crown and straight trunk, it makes a striking addition to any landscape.
The leaves of the Concolor Fir are narrow and needle-like, ranging from 1/2 to 1 1/2 inch in length. They start bluish-green when young and turn a dull green with age. The bark on younger trees is smooth and gray, while older trees develop a reddish-brown to light gray bark that breaks into irregular flattened scales.
As an ornamental tree, the Concolor Fir is highly regarded for its pleasing natural shape, foliage color, and pleasant aroma. It is also a popular choice as a Christmas tree due to its good needle retention. This tree can thrive in zones 5 and 6, making it a versatile option for various climates.
Aside from its ornamental value, the Concolor Fir also has commercial uses. The wood is light, soft, and coarse-grained, suitable for pulpwood, lumber, furniture, and boxes and crates. Its lack of distinct odor also makes it ideal for butter storage tubs.
Overall, the Concolor Fir stands out for its beauty, adaptability, and practical uses. Whether as a decorative addition to your landscape or as a centerpiece during the holiday season, this tree is sure to impress.
