Fraser Fir

Fraser Fir is a uniformly pyramid-Shaped tree. Strong branches are turned slightly awkward which gives the tree a compact appearance.

Needles are 1/2 to 1 inch long, have a broad circular base, and are usually dark green on the upper surface and lighter on the lower surface. On lower branches, leaves are two-ranked (occurring in two opposite rows). On upper twigs, leaves tend to curl up word forming a more U-shaped appearance.

Douglas Fir

The branches are spreading to drooping, the buds sharply pointed and the bark is very thick, fluted, ridged, rough and dark brown.

The needles are dark green or blue green, 1 to 1.5 inches long, soft to the touch and radiate out in all directions from the branch.  They have a sweet fragrance when crushed.

Concolor Fir

Concolor Fir produces a spire-like crown with a straight trunk. Needles are small and narrow and occur in rows. On upper branches, needles tend to be thicker and more curved than those on the lower branches.

Needles are usually 1/2 to 1 1/2 inches long, pointed or notched at the tip, bluish green when young turning dull green with age.  Typically, they are flat without stalks.

Blue Spruce

Blue Spruce has a pyramidal shape and cone shaped crown. Needles are 1 to 1.5 inches long on lower branches but somewhat shorter on upper branches. They are four sided and have a very sharp point on the end.

Needles are generally dull bluish-gray to silvery blue and emit a resinous odor when crushed.  Some trees have a more distinct bluish white or silvery white foliage.

White Pine

Needles are soft, flexible and bluish-green to silver-green in color and are regularly arranged in bundles of five. Needles are 2 1/2 inches long and are usually shed at the end of the second growing season. Cones are 4 to 8 inches in length, usually slightly curved and mature at the end of the second season.

Cone scales are rather thin and never have prickles. Cones also have exudations of a fragrant gummy resin.
