Fraser firs are common in the southern Appalachian region.

As a matter of fact they only grow in the southern Appalachian

mountain range including North Carolina, Virginia,

and eastern Tennessee.

The trees are named after John Fraser who was a botanist exploring

in the Appalachian mountains of North Carolina during the 1700's.

There are over 50 million Fraser firs grown in North Carolina.

They are represent over 90% of the Christmas trees grown in 

North Carolina.

They can be as tall as 80 feet!

You'll only find Fraser firs in higher elevations as they grow only above 2500'.
