Canaan Fir

Abies balsamea var phanerolepsis

The Canaan Fir is a stately fir that boasts dense, dark green to bluish fragrant foliage. With excellent needle retention, it is a sought after choice for Christmas tree production. A fine addition to your landscape whether in groups or as a single specimen. Needles are about an inch in length and cones are 3-4″, growing upright on its branches. While similar to the Fraser and Balsam Fir in appearance and growth habit, the Canaan Fir will grow in heavier soils as well as soil with a higher pH level. Avoid heavy wet clay. Since this tree exhibits a later bud break, the Canaan Fir is less susceptible to spring frost injury. Fairly deer resistant. Also according to the MSU Extension. They can also tolerate drought once established.. Buy Canaan Fir tree seedlings from our nursery today!
