Nordmann fir

Front: Nordmann fir
Inside:
blank
Back:
Family: Pinaceae
Scientific name: Abies nordmanniana
Nordmann fir grow in the cool, rainy hights of mountains southeast of the Black Sea. Insects shelter in the plates of the bark and birds such as the Siskin and Crossbill nest in the its branches, feeding on the insects and cones. The fir genus name “Abies” comes from the Latin meaning “rising one”. Fir pinecones rise from the branches like candles and firs are also associated with rising above fears. The Old English word firgen, meaning “mountain forest”, is based on ancient words like firre and fyr, meaning “fire” and “light”. Fir trees are ancient symbols of eternal light during the dark winter months.

Douglas fir

Front: Douglas fir
Inside: 
blank
Back: 
Family: Pinaceae
Scientific name: Pseudotsuga menziesii
Deep in mossy, rainy forests the Douglas fir grows in the weak winter sunlight. Brought to the UK from Northern America in 1827 by botanist David Douglas, it can grow up to 55m tall and live for over 1,000 years. Its bark contains resin-filled blisters and is flame resistant, protecting the tree from forest fires. When crushed, the needles have a sweet resin smell and are used in tea infusions. Look closely at a Douglas fir pinecone and you’ll see how its scales (brachts) look like the tail and hind legs of a little mouse scurrying to safety. An Indigenous American legend tells of mice who hid in the cones to escape a forest fire.

Fraser fir

Front: Fraser fir
Inside: 
blank
Back: 
 Family: Pinaceae
Scientific name: Abies fraseri
High on the slopes of the Appalachian Mountains Fraser fir trees grow quietly among the morning mist. Named after John Fraser, an 18th century Scottish botanist, these trees are celebrated for their strong branches, beautiful fir tree scent and needles that don’t fall easily. A popular Christmas tree, often chosen to decorate the US White House, wild populations are becoming endangered due to pests and acid rain. Let us celebrate the joy and light this evergreen tree gives us during the dark months and work to protect their forests.

Norway spruce

Front: Norway spruce
Inside: 
blank
Back: 
 Family: Pinaceae
Scientific name: Picea abies
Over thousands of years the Norway spruce adapted to its native northern European environment. Here, winters are long and sunlight scarce. Dressed in its coat of green all year round, the spruce absorbs as much of the weak light as it can to make food, slowly growing into the most beautiful Christmas tree. 

An evergreen celebration of life while all else sleeps.
