The Balsam Fir is one of the most traditional christmas trees. It has 1″ long needles with a green top side and a silverish bottom. Great for people who have dainty ornaments and like a softer feeling tree! This tree holds it’s needles fairly well and will survive for a long time in many climates.
Pros: Not prickly, and the most fragrant of all the trees.
Cons: Doesn’t hold large or heavy ornaments well and it doesn’t hold its needles as well as some of the other varieties of christmas trees.
