The Concolor Fir tree, Abies concolor, is also known as white fir, Concolor fir, Silver fir, Rocky Mountain White fir, Colorado Fir, Lows Fir, and Pacific White fir.
Concolor Fir trees are large, densely-growing, narrow trees with a dome-shaped crown growing to 50 feet or more. This evergreen conifer tree is native to the mountainous regions of the western United States.
This rapid growing fir tree is the most drought-resistant of all native firs. Although it can exist on poor, dry sites, the white fir grows most vigorously in moist, well-drained, acid soils in protected locations. It is a rapid grower after it becomes established.
Concolor Fir trees are stately, pyramid shaped evergreens with distinct horizontal branches. Like most firs they are fragrant; when the needles are crushed they smell like an orange! This fir can grow well in hot summer climate and is very drought tolerant.
It makes a handsome ornamental and decorative Christmas tree!

sammie0602 Review by Samantha Anderson
We bought this tree at our local nursery last nite and they dubbed it a "rubbermaid tree". Anyone ever heard of that? I tried to look it up online to no avail, but did discover that it was called a concolor fir. We absolutely love the orange-piney smell it has. The previous review is correct; the needles are longer, they don't poke ya, yet they are more sturdy. We love this tree!!!
The Wonder-Fir Review by Forestman
Ive failed at attempts to grow any member of the Abies family in the super-harsh climate of Northwestern Nevada. Then I tried a Concolor. Despite hurricane-force winds, periods of single-digit humidity and sub-zero winters, the tree grows 2ft. a year and looks great in ALL seasons!
Great Speciman Review by Dan
We planted 2 concolors prior to landscaping a large, open back yard. The trees, now 10+ feet tall, are about 150 apart and add definition between the residence and the recreation areas of the property.
Pleasant Surprise Review by nj
We usually buy a Fraser Fir as a Christmas Tree, however this year, wanted something long-needled for a change. Our local nursery had a long needled tree that I did not recognize. She said it was a Concolor. What a beautiful tree! Very long, sort of woody needles, easy to clean up. The fragrance is intoxicating - sort of citrus-piney. Very, very dense foliage - so much so that the mini lights at points look "buried" in the boughs. Also, the branches are sturdy enough to bear the weight of heavier ornaments. I will definitely try to find this tree again next year!
Excellent Review by midwestjeff55
once I saw a chance blue seedling of Concolor. It makes the grafted Blue Spruce look inferior. Every blue selection that I have found is grafted onto fraseri and as I understand it fraseri is doomed here with our summer heat and drought. a lot of folks try fraseri, but don`t make it very long here
