Arborist Thoughts

  • This magnificent evergreen deserves more use in the Midwest landscape. 
  • Needles have a beautiful silvery blue color and citrusy fragrance.

  • Concolor Fir is drought tolerant, urban tolerant/adaptable, has little insect or pest problems and is a narrower tree than other large evergreens making it better suited for smaller landscape sites.

  • Would make an excellent alternative to Blue Spruce in the landscape.
