The Fraser fir, Abies fraseri, is a species of fir native to the Appalachian Mountains of the Southeastern United States. Abies fraseri is closely related to Balsam fir, of which it has occasionally been treated as a subspecies or a variety.

The species Abies fraseri is named after the Scottish botanist John Fraser (1750–1811), who made numerous botanical collections in the region. It is sometimes misspelled “Frasier,” “Frazer” or “Frazier.”

The Fraser fir is quickly becoming the most premium species of the cut Christmas tree market. The Fraser has many desirable characteristics, especially its amazing needle retention; it’s colloquially referred to as the “no shed” tree. The Fraser fir is also characterized by heavy density, with rich colors of platinum silver and deep bluish green.

    We get a fraser every year because of their beauty and needle retention. We have never had a problem as long as we keep the tree watered. It is the perfect variety for our family with the silvery blue green needles and branches that will hold our heavier ornaments. Highly recommended!

    We always get a dug tree. It’s getting harder to find people who sale dug trees. They were very welcoming and had a nice selection and a day later we had a nice tree ready to enjoy now and for many years to come. Nice location good people.
