Canaan Fir, Abies balsamea var. phanerolepis – The name ‘Canaan Fir’ derives from one of its native localities, the Canaan Valley in West Virginia. Some botanists regard this variety as a natural hybrid between balsam fir and Fraser fir (Abies fraseri), which occurs further south in the Appalachian Mountains.

Varieties of the species are very popular as Christmas trees, particularly in the northeastern United States. The resin is used to produce Canada balsam, and was traditionally used as a cold remedy and as a glue for glasses, optical instrument components, and for preparing permanent mounts of microscope specimens. The wood is milled for framing lumber, siding and pulped for paper manufacture.

The Canaan fir will grow up to 50 ft. tall and 15 ft. wide, and has the traditional evergreen shape and a very nice fir smell.

Douglas-firs are medium-size to extremely large evergreen trees, 70–390 ft tall (although only Coast Douglas-firs reach such great height). The leaves are flat, soft, linear, 0.8–1.6″long, generally resembling those of the firs, occurring singly rather than in fascicles; they completely encircle the branches, which can be useful in recognizing the species. The female cones are pendulous, with persistent scales (unlike true firs), and are distinctive in having a long tridentine (three-pointed) bract that protrudes prominently above each scale (it resembles the back half of a mouse, with two feet and a tail).

These soft needles are dark green to blue green in color and are approximately 1 to 1 ½ in. in length.  Douglas-fir needles radiate in all directions from the branch. When crushed, these needles have a sweet fragrance. They are one of the top major Christmas tree species in the U.S.

Engelmann Spruce, Picea engelmannii is a medium-sized to large evergreen tree growing to 82 ft. – 130 ft. tall, exceptionally to 213 ft. tall, and with a trunk diameter of up to 4.9 ft. The bark is thin and scaly, flaking off in small circular plates 5–10 cm across. 

Engelmann spruce is of economic importance for its wood, harvested for paper-making and general construction. Wood from slow-grown trees at high altitude has a specialised use in making musical instruments such as acoustic guitars, harps, violins, and pianos. It is also used to a small extent as a Christmas tree.

The Fraser fir branches turn slightly upward. They have good form and needle-retention. They are dark blue-green in color. They have a pleasant scent, and excellent shipping characteristics as well.
