Nordman Fir Tree Saplings

The Nordmann Fir tree, Abies nordmanniana, is a large, vigorous, evergreen conifer. It is an exceptionally good tall screening tree, suitable for most sites except shallow chalk but it will not make a clipped hedge. The tree has a straight central trunk and downward pointing branches. The needles, which are dark green on top and silver-grey underneath, stay on the branches for 14-20 years, longer than any other Fir tree. This helps to create a dense canopy from the tip of the tree down to the ground. It is also what makes this such an outstanding non-drop Christmas Tree. To 40+ metres high.

Nordmann Fir saplings are only delivered bareroot, during winter (Nov-April). All of our young trees and shrubs are measured by their height in centimetres above the ground (the roots aren't measured).

History & uses of Abies nordmanniana:

The Nordmann or Nordmann Fir, also known as the Caucasian Fir, is an East European tree that was not planted much in Britain before the mid-1800's, when it gained favour with the designers of large gardens. More recently, it has become very popular as the best "non-drop" Christmas tree. It is a good timber tree, but it isn't used much for this in Britain because there are even more vigorous Firs available, like the Grand Fir. The largest Nordmann Firs on record were around 60 metres tall.
