What is a Red Fir? Abies magnifica, to be precise. This majestic tree can be found in the wild all over North America, but especially in the west coast region.

The Red Fir is one of the tallest firs in the world, and it grows up to a height of 240 feet! It has a slender build, with drooping branches that give it a graceful appearance. The bark is reddish brown in colour, and the needles are dark green and shiny.

The Red Fir is an evergreen tree, meaning that its needles stay green year-round. It prefers cool, moist climates and grows best at high elevations. You can find it in forests near the mountains, or along riverbanks. The Red Fir is an important part of the local ecosystem, providing food and shelter for wildlife.

The best time to see a Red Fir is in the winter, when the trees are covered in snow. The contrast of the white snow against the dark green needles is a sight to behold!

If you're lucky, you might also see some wildlife frolicking in the forest beneath the trees. So next time you're out exploring nature, be sure to keep an eye out for a Red Fir!
