Some Information About Our Trees
Our farm is unique as we specialize in growing fir trees native to different regions of the United States as well as from many Countries throughout the world. These “exotic” trees provide our customers with something different as compared to the typical limited selections usually found at most tree farms or retail lots. These exotics offer a variety of interesting foliage, texture, scent and color.
We are currently growing 15 species of firs and hybrid crosses which include some of our most popular species:
Balsam Fir, which is our only native fir to the New England region and is known for its soft needle foliage and fresh woods scent.
Fraser Fir, native to the mountains of North Carolina and Virginia, has a shorter needle length and more “bottle type brush foliage” and stiffer branched as compared to Balsam.
Fraser X Balsam, is a hybrid cross between the Balsam and Fraser and is also called the “(Fralsam Trademark of the Weir Tree Farm of Colebrook, NH)” and offers the advantages of both species that neither one separately can provide.
Grand Fir, native to the Northwestern United States, has a very deep green,, long needle foliage, and has the most aromatic scent of all the firs with a citrus-fir odor.
Turkish Fir, native to Northern Turkey, has beautiful, shiny, long needle foliage with limited fir scent which some people with allergies prefer. It is very strong branched which is good for holding heavy ornaments.
Veitch Fir, native to Central Japan, has a medium length needle offering, beautiful, soft, dense foliage.
Corkbark Fir, native to the high elevations of New Mexico and Arizona, has a very soft, blue foliage and is often confused with the Blue Spruce until you touch it and don’t get pricked.
Korean Fir, native to the southern portion of Korea, which has exquisite, formal, green foliage with a beautiful white flash from underneath the needle. Has a unique strong fir scent.
Nordmann Fir, native to Turkey and the Soviet Union, has a very dark green, shiny long needled foliage, but tends to be a more open branched tree which provides an area to display those beautiful ornaments.
Balsam X Veitch , this hybrid cross blends the characteristics of Balsam and Veitch firs with a longer needle than on the Balsam.
Some of the other species growing on the farm that will be ready for harvest in the next few years include:
Greek Fir - Greece
King Boris Fir - Bulgaria
Noble Fir - Northwest United States
Blue Korean - hybrid cross, Korean & Corkbark
Korean X Balsam - hybrid cross, Balsam & Korean
Siberian Fir - Soviet Union
We are constantly replanting these species on a rotational basis to help sustain the variety of species we offer our Customers.
