Grand Fir (Abies grandis) is also known as White, Silver, Balsam, or Piss Fir. It is common in moist forests, stream bottoms, valleys, and lower mountain slopes. It prefers North-facing slopes and can grow in a variety of soil types. It is very shade tolerant, especially when young. It is a dominant climax species in some habitat types and a long-lived seral species in others. Grand Fir is the most popular species for Christmas trees in the Northwest because of its thick-foliage, symmetry, deep green shiny color, and strong, orangish fragrance. Fun fact, Grand fir is the tallest known fir species!
