    About White Fir

    Native to the Western United States, Rocky Mountains, and Western Canada, White Fir (Abies concolor) is probably the best choice among the True Firs to grow in yards and gardens across America. Known also as Concolor Fir, this tree is tolerant of most climates and city conditions, and, while it does have its preferences (full sun, well-draining soils), it is far less fussy about soil types, moisture, heat, and sun exposure than most firs. Indeed, it is the most amenable to cultivation of all the fir species, and though hailing from the West, it is without a doubt the easiest fir to grow in the Eastern U.S. as well (there are significant populations of this species in both Maine and Massachusetts).

    White Fir's Latin name "concolor" refers to the tree's uniform needle color — pale bluish-green on both sides, unlike most firs, which usually display the silvery stomata bloom only on their undersides. The needles of White Fir are also longer (up to 3 inches long) than the needles commonly observed on most firs. Closely related to Grand Fir, White Fir is typically under 100 feet tall, with uniform needles upwardly curved like a ribcage.

    This highly symmetrical tree is a popular Christmas Tree species, with a marvelous citrus smell when the foliage is bruised. It is also a favorite of landscapers, who appreciate its ability to hold a dense, formal shape as it slowly grows into old age, stacking up orderly whorls of four or five branches in flat horizontal sprays.

    About Jonsteen's Seedlings

    All of our trees are seed-grown without poison or pesticides at our nursery on California's Redwood Coast, which is inspected monthly and licensed by the California Department of Agriculture. Trees can provide a natural barrier against high winds, temperatures, noise pollution and soil erosion, all while benefiting local air quality, wildlife and property values — a Jonsteen seedling will only grow in value and beauty!


    About Jonsteen's 100% Guarantee

    All of our trees are guaranteed to arrive healthy and in good condition. If your tree perishes despite your honest efforts, we will be happy to replace it with a small-sized seedling for just the cost of shipping/handling (typically under $5). You can learn more about our guarantee and tree replacement policy here.

    Seedling Size Chart: Small

    Due to the dynamic nature of actively growing trees, as well as the tremendous variation between species’ growth rates, we rely on the cubic volume of a seedling’s root mass to determine its “size” (Small / Medium / Large / XL). Within each size there is minor variance — the dimensions provided here represent the category minimum. If exact measurements are essential, please contact us about current stock.
