This newer variety has become a very popular choice as a Christmas tree over the years because it is one of the longest lasting cut trees, remaining fresh from Thanksgiving through New Years! The shape of the Canaan Fir is beautiful, it has strong branches for hanging ornaments, an exceptional fragrance, and excellent needle retention. Canaan fir has a firm branch with soft short needles that are a lustrous dark green on the upper surface and a lovely silvery blue on the underside. It has characteristics similar to both Balsam and Fraser fir. The wonderful fragrance of the Canaan Fir rivals that of its cousin the Balsam Fir and it will fill the house with the delightful “scent of Christmas”.
