Containerized fir trees are a great value at $70 for 198 trees. They are shipped in the styroblock containers which allow for greater planting flexibility. They can be held in the styroblock containers for several weeks prior to planting with proper watering. Individually wrapped they make a great seedling for promotional events and weddings. The Canaan Fir is a relative newcomer to the Christmas tree market. They share characteristics of both the Fraser and Balsam species, and are considered a natural cross by some. The trees range from 2 to 4 inches in length.
The Canaan Fir has good needle retention and natural late flushing trait making it resistant to frost damage. This makes an attractive landscape plant or Christmas tree. It does better on wetter sites than Fraser fir, but does prefer good drainage.
