White Fir's Latin name "concolor" refers to the tree's uniform needle color - pale bluish-green on both sides, unlike most firs, which usually display the silvery stomata bloom only on their undersides. The needles of White Fir are also longer (up to 3 inches long) than the needles commonly observed on most firs. Closely related to Grand Fir, White Fir is typically under 100 feet tall, with uniform needles upwardly curved like a ribcage.
This highly symmetrical tree is a popular Christmas Tree species, with a marvelous citrus smell when the foliage is bruised. It is also a favorite of landscapers, who appreciate its ability to hold a dense, formal shape as it slowly grows into old age, stacking up orderly whorls of four or five branches in flat horizontal sprays.
