Fraser Fir

Fraser fir (Abies fraseri), was named for John Fraser, a Scottish botanist who explored the southern Appalachian Mountains in the late 18th century. Fraser fir also called southern balsam fir and she-balsam, is a small- to medium-size tree.

Fraser fir is the only fir endemic to the southern Appalachian Mountains. Its soft and brittle wood is sometimes used for pulpwood, light frame construction, interior knotty paneling, and crates.

Fraser fir boughs have often been used for "pine pillows" and bed stuffing, says the National Christmas Tree Association.

Fraser Fir is widely used as a Christmas tree. Its fragrance, appearance, strong twigs, and ability to retain its soft needles for a long time when cut (which do not prick easily when hanging ornaments) make it an excellent choice for this purpose.
