Abies concolor, or the White Fir, is a slow-growing, long-lived evergreen tree native to the western United States. It can reach heights of up to 130 feet and has bluish-green needles arranged in a spiral pattern. The cones are typically 3 to 6 inches long and are a food source for many animals. The tree prefers cool, moist environments and is often found at elevations between 4,000 and 9,000 feet. It is adaptable to a variety of soil types, but prefers well-draining soils. Abies concolor has several uses, including as a source of wood for paper pulp, boxes, and crates. It is also popular as an ornamental tree due to its attractive shape and foliage and is often used as a Christmas tree. However, the tree is vulnerable to several pests and diseases, including aphids, scale insects, and fungal diseases. Climate change also poses a risk to the tree's growth and survival. In summary, the White Fir is a majestic evergreen tree native to the western United States that grows slowly and can reach impressive heights. It has bluish-green needles and cones that are a food source for animals. While it has several uses, it is vulnerable to pests and diseases, and climate change poses a risk to its survival.

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).
