Introducing Abies fabri, also known as Faber's Fir, a stunning conifer species that is native to the Sichuan region of western China. It can be found on the sacred mountain of Emei Shan and extends westward to the Gongga Shan massif. This magnificent tree can thrive at altitudes ranging from 1,500 to 4,000 meters.

Growing up to an impressive height of 40 meters, Abies fabri displays a strong and sturdy trunk, reaching a diameter of around one meter. Its crown takes on a conical or broad columnar shape, providing a striking silhouette. The shoots of this species are yellowish-brown, either hairless or slightly hairy. The glossy dark green leaves are linear and measure 1.5 to 3 centimeters in length and 2 to 2.5 millimeters in width. They possess two white stomatal bands underneath, with slightly revolute margins.

The cones of Abies fabri are cylindrical, initially dark purple and then maturing into a beautiful purple-blue hue. They reach lengths of 5 to 11 centimeters and widths of 3 to 4.5 centimeters, with slightly exserted bracts.

This species is further divided into two subspecies. Abies fabri subsp. fabri is found in central and western Sichuan, where heavy summer monsoon rainfall occurs. On the other hand, Abies fabri subsp. minensis can be found in northwestern Sichuan, which experiences a slightly drier climate.

Abies fabri is closely related to other conifer species, including Abies delavayi, Abies forrestii, and Abies fargesii. However, it remains distinct and unique in its own right, thriving in its specific region.

If you're looking to add grace, beauty, and a touch of elegance to your landscape, consider Abies fabri. Its majestic presence and impressive characteristics are sure to captivate all who encounter it.
