Abies Alba, commonly known as the European silver fir, is a tall and majestic coniferous tree that is native to the mountainous regions of Europe, from the Pyrenees to the Carpathians. The tree is well-known for its striking appearance, with a narrow and conical shape and silvery-blue needles that give it a distinct and elegant appearance. The Abies Alba is a slow-growing tree that can reach heights of up to 60 meters and can live for several centuries. Its bark is smooth and grayish-brown when young but becomes thick and furrowed with age, providing a unique texture to its appearance. The tree has a wide-spreading root system that helps it to grow in mountainous regions and withstand harsh weather conditions. One of the distinctive features of Abies Alba is its needle-like leaves, which are approximately 3-5 centimeters long and grow in rows on either side of the branch. The needles are bluish-green in color and have a silvery sheen that reflects light, creating a stunning effect in the sunlight. The cones of the European silver fir are also strikingly beautiful, with a unique shape and a purplish-brown color. In conclusion, Abies Alba is a stunning and majestic tree species that is not only beautiful to look at but also plays a vital role in the ecological and cultural landscape of Europe. As we work towards preserving our natural environment, it is important that we recognize the value of species like the European silver fir and take action to protect them for future generations.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
