Wood: Fir tree wood can be used for frames and other smaller scale wood projects that don’t call for an extremely durable wood.
Pulp: The timber from the tree is made into wood pulp.
Mulch: Old Fir trees that have been tossed out after Christmas are often pulverized and used as mulch.
Stuffing: Chopped up Fir wood is used to stuff pillows and mattresses in some parts of the world.
Fragrance: Oils from Fir trees are extracted and used in commercial products labeled “pine scented”.
If you are looking to add a Fir to your yard, but don’t want to deal with shedding during periods of drought, then select the Balsam Fir which maintains its needles despite lack of water.
