With the ability to reach a height of over 60 metres, it is Europe's tallest tree. Its needles have two whitish wax stripes on the underside, which makes it easy to identify. Its cones sit facing upwards into the air, upright on the branches and fall apart when the seeds ripen. The seeds have a small sail wing that carries them through the air. When all seeds have flown away, a loose spindle remains on the branch. The essential oil of the needles is rich in monoterpenes (up to 95%), which makes it easy to spread in the air. The aroma of silver fir is considered stress-relieving and promotes concentration.
Skin: The essential oil of silver fir has anti-inflammatory and antiviral properties.
