Abies Overview

This genus contains almost 60 species of large evergreen coniferous trees known as Firs. At maturity they can grow to heights of 80m and widths of 4m straight across the trunk. Their gendered cones resemble those of cedars, standing upright on branches and falling apart upon maturity to spread their seed contents. Branches bear linear, flattened, sometimes glossy, green, needle-like leaves.
