Siberian fir

The tree lives in the cold boreal climate on moist soils in mountains or river basins at elevations of 1900-2400 m. It is very shade-tolerant, frost-resistant, and hardy, surviving temperatures down to ?50 C. It rarely lives over 200 years due to the susceptibility to fungal decay in the wood.
