Beyond the blade of grass, tucked into the shadows of an alpine fir
, I recognized two velvet-covered tines that formed a tremendously deep rear fork.
Even in this stunted state, an alpine fir
is easily identified by its short one- to two-inch upturned needles and its compact shape.
Some good choices for mountain areas include alpine fir
(Abies lasiocarpa), Douglas fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii), Colorado spruce (Picea pungens 'Fat Albert'), Colorado blue spruce (P.
This confirmed that ACQ and CA are capable of penetrating alpine fir
better than CCA.
. Abies lasiocarpa 'Glauca Compacta' has a dense pyramidal form and rich steel blue needles.
Note that among the SPF mix, lodgepole pine has the highest density and MOE, followed by spruce and alpine fir
. Among the three veneer types, MPB veneers had the smallest variation in both dry density and MOE.
DECKED OUT WITH COLORED LIGHTS, THE ALPINE fir
pictured above is a magical sight at Jerry Zetzsche's house around Christmas.
The fire has burned up over a mountain ridge through grass, sage, pinion juniper and alpine firs
, and by midday was burning down north-facing slopes into a small valley, Carpenter said.
