Balsam Fir is a medium size; height 40′ to 60′ with continuous straight tapering trunk from root to top; diameter 9″ to 20″ or more; spreading branches form a handsome, symmetrical, slender pyramid. Found in the forests of northern Minnesota and in a few scattered localities in the southeastern corner of the state; usually associated with white spruce, from which it can easily be distinguished by its large upright cones and soft leaves; thrives in cool, damp, places; very shade tolerant. Light, soft, not strong or durable, coarse-grained; used only slightly for construction lumber; is mixed with spruce wood for paper pulp; especially important as Christmas trees.
