I don't know what that is - Noble- I will have to look that up. Glad you got a good one.

Every single stand here has Frasier. Comes from the NC mountains - if it had a better fragrance - it would be perfect!

Frasier's are beautiful, and since they come from your area at least you know they are fresh;o)

Noble Fir are native to northern California and parts of the Pacific Northwest. That's probably why we see a lot of them sold here in Arizona.

I like the smell of balsam and the Frasier for keeping ornaments.
The Noble firs that they sell here at the fancy garden center, are so tall and heavy..you have to have a few strong folk to set it up and a really wide water stand.
