Fraser firs make excellent Christmas trees. They originate from the southeastern United States and are sometimes called Southern Balsam or Southern Balsam Firs.

The branches on these trees curl upwards and can hold a decent-sized ornament. The color is a deep blue-green and it has a very Christmasy scent. The trees naturally grow in an ideal pyramid shape. The needles are flat, with a dark green on the top and two silver-white bands on the bottom.

The trees grow relatively quickly, around 8 years for an 8 foot tree. Sometimes there are gaps where branches do not grow out of the trunk so you should rotate the tree to get the best side facing the viewer.
