Red fir (Abies magnifica var. magnifica)
The red fir (Abies magnifica var. magnifica) is a pine tree native to California and southern Oregon. Also known as silvertip fir or California red fir, this magnificent evergreen graces high elevation mountains and often dominates vast forests.
A red fir (Abies magnifica var. magnifica) seedling rises from the forest floor in spring. Though this plant starts out small and vulnerable, it has the potential to grow into a magnificent tree, reaching heights of over 200 feet; what a symbol for growth, potential and new beginnings! Eldorado National Forest, Sierra Nevada, Amador County, California.
