Nordmann Fir

Nordmann fir is one of the most important species grown for Christmas trees. Nordmann Fir (Abies nordmanniana) is a fir native to the mountains south and east of the Black Sea, in Turkey, Georgia, Russian Caucasus, and northern parts of Armenia.

The Nordmann fir is favored by many because of its attractive foliage, with needles that are not sharp, and that do not drop readily when the tree dries out.

The leaf of the Nordmann fir has flattened needles, which are shiny and very dark green above and silvery blue below. They're blunt or notched at the end, and clustered and dense on the upper surface of the twig.

Nordmann Fir, says the University of Kentucky Agriculture Department, is a spectacular plant; the best fir species for Kentucky landscapes.

Plants typically grow at a moderate rate to 60-80' tall and 30'-40' wide.

This stately tree is also a popular ornamental tree in parks and large gardens. Its wood is soft and white, and is used for general construction, paper, etc.
