Canaan Fir


This Arborvitae obviously derives its name from its pyramidal shape. The Pyramidal Arb has dense foliage and a medium growth rate that makes it perfect for screening and/or a wind block. The Pyramidal Arborvitae prefers well drained soil and partial to full sunlight. It is also praised for its near perfect pyramid shape, virtually never requiring pruning/trimming. Canaan Fir is now being used for X-mas trees in plantations.


Growth Rate: This tree grows at a slow rate, with height increases of less than 12" per year
Mature Size: Can grow up to 45–75 feet
