What kind of tree is a Silvertip fir?
A Silvertip is a young California Red fir, its botanical name is (Abies Magnifica.) The term "Silvertip" was mentioned in a literature written by John Muir, well known naturalist, in his observation of the distinct silvertips on the new growth, their layered wholes of limbs of green, blue color and symmetrical growth. Our silvertips grow naturally on our tree farm at 8000 ft. elevation (near Yosemite National Park). Silvertips are a true high elevation fir. We do not use cloned trees so every tree is unique. Silvertips are slower growing than most other species used as Christmas trees. The Silvertips slow growth makes them a rare Christmas tree and not commonly found like the Douglas Fir. There are a number of reasons why the Silvertip Christmas tree is more special than any other Christmas tree. Maybe it's because of family tradition, the silvery tips, the rarity of the tree or maybe it's the overall experience that these beautiful trees bring to your home. Silvertip Christmas trees have been a traditional favorite, with there long lasting value, and sturdy limbs to hold your precious ornaments.
