Abies grandis, also known as Giant Fir, Grand Fir, Great Silver Fir, or Western White Fir, is a magnificent coniferous tree native to the Pacific Northwest of North America. It can grow up to 40-70m tall and has a trunk diameter of up to 2m. This fir species is known for its non-resinous and fine-textured lumber, which is highly sought after by the paper-making, packing crates, and construction industries. The Coast and Interior varieties of Grand Fir have different characteristics, but both are used for Christmas decorations and planted as ornamental trees. The inner bark was historically used by some Plateau Indian tribes to treat colds and fever. With its attractive citrus-like scent and impressive size, Abies grandis is a must-have for any conifer enthusiast or gardener.
