Fir, Balsam – 6-12″ (P+1)
Balsam fir (Abies balsamea) is a slow-growing, medium-sized tree, reaching heights of 25-60 feet. It is very shade tolerant, relatively short-lived and aromatic. Balsam fir prefers a moist to wet site, on an organic, well-drained sand or loam soil. It is naturally fond on sites ranging from poorly drained swamps to well-drained uplands.
