Fir is not just fir - greenery from the top

Fir has a great number of applications, and it really matters which type you use. If you make a wreath using fir suitable for decorations, there will be considerable waste.

You can tell the age by the colour. If you cut the branches off an old fir top, you get the Noble fir’s silver-bluish ornamental branches. The colour is extremely decorative, people love it and it’s the market’s most expensive fir greenery, because it requires a tree that has been left standing to grow for many years before you can make cuttings, and you usually need a lift.
