Nordmann fir (Abies Nordmanniana)
Nordmann fir is the most popular Christmas tree in Europe and neighbouring countries. The tree originated from the forests of Georgia and Turkey.
A great number of the trees cultivated in Denmark and foreign nurseries are grown from imported seed. In Denmark, seeds are harvested in selected areas, making it possible to gather seeds from specifically selected growth stands of high quality.
14 years in the making
The plants are usually 3 to 4 years old when they are removed from the nursery and re-planted for the Christmas tree production in the forest or plantation. Then it takes an additional 6 to 10 years to produce good Christmas trees.
The superior Danish climate
Nordmann firs are hardy, but thrive best in areas with a mild climate all year round. The Danish coastal climate is optimal for cultivation. When growing conditions are good, the trees achieve their characteristic full, deep green, very attractive, soft needles.
