TSM-126 - 3x Mature Winter Firs
TMS-126 these 3x Mature Winter Firs are part of our Trees & Scenic Material range, and are suitable for 10mm, 15mm and 28mm scales.
Firs (Abies) are a genus of 4856 species of evergreen coniferous trees in the family Pinaceae. They are found through much of North and Central America, Europe, Asia, and North Africa, occurring in mountains over most of the range. Firs are most closely related to the genus Cedrus (cedar). Douglas firs are not true firs, being of the genus Pseudotsuga.
They are large trees, reaching heights of 1080 m (33262 ft) tall and trunk diameters of 0.54 m (1 ft 8 in13 ft 1 in) when mature. Firs can be distinguished from other members of the pine family by the unique attachment of their needle-like leaves and by their different cones.
Identification of the different species is based on the size and arrangement of the leaves, the size and shape of the cones, and whether the bract scales of the cones are long and exserted, or short and hidden inside the cone.
