The Pitch Firs are classed among the most ornamental of the Conifer family, all of the species being highly prized for their beautiful form and tall pyramidal stately outline, making, when in health, splendid specimens for decorating the lawn either singly or in group form.

In addition to our native species, the Eastern and Japanese species and even the Himalayan and Norwegian thrive in California, growing well in any garden soil which is properly drained.

Propagate by seeds sown in Spring, one-quarter of an inch deep, in a shady spot; transplant the following year.
