Description

Balsam Fir Tree Seeds (Conifer) 6750. Native of Canada. Perennial.

Approx. 50 seeds/pkt (132 seeds/gram)

Balsam fir is a native tree of Canada and grows to be a medium sized tree typically ranging from 15-20 m (50-66′) in height. It makes a nice specimen for larger landscapes and is of considerable importance in the Christmas tree trade. Wood from balsam fir is typically used in pulp and paper production and to a lesser degree in dimensional lumber for framing. While balsam fir is a favourite browse tree of moose, deer typically leave it alone.

How to Grow

Stratification of tree seed occurs naturally outdoors through the winter. Sowing tree seeds outdoors in the fall takes advantage of this natural effect. To stratify indoors, mix the seed with a moistened, sterile, peat based soil-less mix in a container, wrap in a ventilated bag, and place it in a refrigerator for 12 to 20 weeks. In the spring plant the seed in a sheltered spot outside to grow into seedlings. Transplant to a permanent site when well rooted. Firs prefer a site in full sun with an open fertile soil.
