The Fraser Fir grows to a height of 6′ in about 8 years. It grows best in cool, moist, well-drained soils. Planting in heavy, wet soils is not recommended. The Fraser Fir is primarily used as a Christmas tree.
The needles of a Fraser Fir are approximately 3/4″ in length. The needles are flat with round edges and are soft to the touch. When displayed needle retention is excellent. The color of a Fraser Fir differs from tree to tree but is best described as being a shiny dark green.
