What size will a Fraser Fir reach? I was told 12' tall by 6-7' wide. We wish to plant this close to a walkway and are going to allow 4' from the edge of the walkway.

Fraser Firs are often grown on Christmas Tree farms. The trees are sheared to keep them small and full. Left to grow naturally, a Fraser Fir can reach 30' - 50' feet tall. The trees like acidic soil and cool, moist growing conditions. They can be kept smaller with annual shearing, but a 4' foot width isn't very realistic. How about a dwarf pine instead?
