Growing to 150ft (45m), layers of horizontal branches form the characteristic regular outline of the Noble Fir
It is a hardy tree withstanding the wind and snow on exposed northern sites even where the soil is poor, making it a viable timber tree in some upland forests.
In the less rugged south the noble fir often sickens and sometimes dies attacked by woolly aphids which destroy the terminal bud.
It also fares badly in the shade or on very chalky soils.
It has gained tremendous popularity in recent years as a Christmas tree as it holds it's needles even in centrally heated environments.
A striking feature of the noble fir is the huge green cone growing to 10in long and nearly half as broad with prominant down turned bracts.
