The branches are stiff enough for ornaments however.

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 have to have a few strong folk to set it up and a really wide water stand.
