Discover the beauty and versatility of Abies sachalinensis, also known as the Sakhalin fir. This species of conifer belongs to the pine family and is native to Sakhalin Island, southern Kurils in Russia, and northern Hokkaido in Japan. First discovered by Carl Friedrich Schmidt in 1866, this plant was re-discovered by Charles Maries in 1877 near Aomori on the main Japanese island of Honshū. With a maximum height of 30m and a maximum girth of 100cm, this tree grows well in moist but not water-logged soil and heavy clay soils. Sachalin firs are very shade tolerant, especially when young, and are frequently used for cultivation in gardens and arboreta in Europe, England, Russia, and the USA. They are important for the production of wood pulp, tanning and dying, essential oils, fibers, timber, and medicine. Discover the natural beauty and usefulness of Abies sachalinensis for yourself.
