Fir (Nordman)

Abies nordmanniana
Nordman Fir, Abies nordmanniana,
It is difficult to temper my enthusiasm for this tree! A majestic tree, the outline striking and bold without being obnoxious. The foliage is rich with the needles a lush dark green on top and silvery undersides which give it a pleasing two tone appearance. Best of all, it is one of the most trouble free of the Firs in the Appalachian region. This is a large tree maturing to height of 70' or more. Grows slowly when very young / moderately fast after the first few years. Nordmann Fir leaves one with a feeling that it is a tree to be respected. In youth it is attractive. As it comes of age, it becomes bold and impressive. And it’s not afraid of summer. This, along with the similar Turkish Fir, can be planted with confidence in environments where most Firs will languish. The obvious use of such a grand tree is as a specimen in a prominent location. If planted with other trees, be sure it is flanked with deciduous trees. If possible, situate it where a sunrise or sunset in the background can accent its bold outline.
A majestic, bold conifer with outstanding dark green foliage.
