Abies magnifica

Red Fir, California Red Fir

These cone-bearing evergreens, commonly called firs, are large, majestic trees. Place them in groups, singly in lawns, or in forest plantings. Their upright cones vary in color -- purple, blue, red-brown or green -- by species. The flat needles are aromatic. Firs prefer moist, cool, acid soil, and full sun. Many types need some winter chill and shelter from wind. Polluted city air hinders growth. Though firs do not require pruning, you can tip back branch ends to promote denser growth. Even large trees are transplantable.
