Abies nordmanniana, commonly known as Nordmann fir or Caucasian fir, is a tall evergreen coniferous tree belonging to the Pinaceae family. It is native to the Caucasus Mountains, which span across Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, and Russia. The tree is widely cultivated for its ornamental value and as a popular Christmas tree. Nordmann firs can reach heights of up to 60 meters, with a straight trunk and a conical crown. The tree's bark is greyish-brown, smooth when young, and furrowed when mature. Its leaves are needle-like, flattened, and measure around 1.5 to 3.5 cm in length, with a glossy dark green upper surface and two white stripes on the underside. Nordmann firs are monoecious, which means that both male and female reproductive structures are found on the same tree. The tree produces cones that are ovoid in shape, 10 to 20 cm in length, and 5 to 8 cm in width. The cones are green when immature and turn brown as they mature. They disintegrate upon maturity, releasing the seeds. Nordmann firs are a popular ornamental tree due to their symmetrical shape and attractive foliage. They prefer well-drained soils and can grow in both full sun and partial shade. The tree is also known for its high tolerance to cold and heat, making it suitable for a wide range of climatic conditions. The Nordmann fir has become a popular Christmas tree in recent years, as it retains its needles for a longer period than other types of firs. The tree's needles are also less prickly than other firs, making it easier to decorate and handle. The Nordmann fir's popularity as a Christmas tree has led to an increase in commercial plantations in Europe.

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.
