Fir Tree

Just About Fir Tree

Appearance of Fir Tree

1. Leaves: Fir trees have needles instead of traditional leaves. The smooth, flexible needles are short, flat and stick up like toothbrush bristles and remain green year-round.

2. Branches: The branches grow in whorls around the tree’s trunk to form a pyramid-like shape. The Fir’s cones hang from the branches.

3. Cones: Taking on a cylinder to oval-like shape, the Fir tree’s cones are brown and spiky. On some types of Firs the cones collect in dense clusters while others appear sporadically on the branches.

4. Bark: Young trees feature a smooth, thin bark, while older Firs have a thick, furrowed bark with deep ridges.
