North Carolina Fraser Firs
The Fraser Fir is the State Christmas Tree for the state of North Carolina.
Fraser fir is a uniformly pyramid-shaped tree which reaches a maximum height of about 80 feet and a diameter of 1-1.5 feet. Strong branches are turned slightly upward which gives the tree a compact appearance. The needles to the tree are dark-green, flat and have a grove on the upper side with two silvery-white bands on the bottom.Typically, these needles are about half-an-inch to one inch long, strong, and circle the entire sprig of the branch.
These trees are beautiful to decorate, are resilient throughout the Christmas season, and are strong enough to carry your heaviest ornaments.
