Spanish Fir

Abies pinsapo is an evergreen tree growing to 20-30 m tall, with a conic crown, sometimes becoming irregular with age. The leaves are 1.5-2 cm long, arranged radially all round the shoots, and are strongly glaucous pale blue-green, with broad bands of whitish wax on both sides. The cones are cylindrical, 9-18 cm long, greenish-pink to purple before maturity, and smooth with the bract scales short and not exserted. When mature, they disintegrate to release the winged seeds.

Abies pinsapo (Spanish Fir) is a species of fir native to southern Spain and northern Morocco. Related to other species of spruce Mediterranean distribution, is called the Andalusian National Tree, native and originary from the Andalusian mountains. In Spain it is comun to altitudes of 900-2000 m in the Sierra de Grazalema in the province of Cádiz and the Sierra de las Nieves near Ronda in the province of Málaga. More
