What is the Difference Between Fraser Fir and Balsam Fir?
Both are commonly used as Christmas trees, but there are a few key differences between Balsam fir and Fraser fir that make them unique.
Origins - Fraser firs are native to the Southern United States, while Balsam firs are found throughout North America, making them more accessible for household or commercial uses.
Height - Balsam fir trees can grow upwards of 70 feet, while Fraser fir trees reach an average of 30 to 50 feet.
Needles - Fraser firs have 1-inch needles that grow in every direction. Balsam firs, on the other hand, have semi-flat needles that are up to 1.5 inches in length. They grow in a spiral around the branch, but they’re less dense than a Fraser fir.
Color - Balsam fir needles appear dark green with silver tones, while Fraser fir needles are bluish green with silver undersides.
Shape and branches - Fraser fir trees have a conical profile and sturdy branches for holding heavy Christmas ornaments. Balsam firs have a teardrop silhouette with upward-sloping branches that are more flexible.
Uses - Aside from being staple holiday decorations, both tree species have medicinal purposes due to their antiseptic properties. Some furniture manufacturers also use Balsam fir to make tables, chairs, and more.
