FIRE ECOLOGY OR ADAPTATIONS: Balsam fir is easily killed by fire. Seedlings establish after fire only if surviving seed trees are present. Balsam fir is therefore a rare postfire pioneer .FIRE REGIMES: Find fire regime information for the plant communities in which this species may occur by entering the species name in the FEIS home page under "Find Fire Regimes".
Genre/Form: Academic theses: Additional Physical Format: Online version: Heikkenen, Herman John. Balsam fir ecology. (OCoLC) Material Type. Balsam fir is truly a northern species and is an important part of northern mixed forests or boreal forests.
As I’ve already told you, Abies balsamea is an incredibly important wildlife tree. Deer, moose, rabbits, and many species of birds use balsam fir stands for thermal cover because the dense foliage cuts down on wind and insulates the area. Balsam fir is native to the far northern parts of the United States, up into Canada.
This evergreen tree has flat, dark green needles with a strong balsam scent. Balsam fir makes a striking figure in the landscape with its narrowly-pyramidal shape, but it does best in cooler northern climates.
Comments: Balsam Fir is a favorite Christmas tree species, and its resin is used to make Canada balsam. Such resin (when purified) has very good optical qualities, and was used as an adhesive in bonding optical elements and lenses up until the s, when it was replaced by synthetic resins.
Balsam Fir Abies balsamea. The balsam fir is a native evergreen well-adapted to the cold climates of the northern United States and Canada.

Balsam fir can primarily be found on soils with a pH ranging anywhere fromwhich is slightly acidic, but prefers soil with a pH closer to (3). When found in swamps, balsam fir often grows in pure stands.
Yet, it grows better on adjacent flatlands in common association with various spruce, where better drained soils exist. Stands of balsam fir are often found in association with black spruce, white spruce and aspen.
This tree is a major food for moose, American red squirrels, crossbills and chickadees, as well as shelter for moose, snowshoe hares, white-tailed deer, ruffed grouse and other small mammals and songbirds. Many botanists consider Fraser fir (Abies fraseri), which occurs further south in the.
The book will appeal to a wide range of readers specifically concerned with forestry, including research workers, educators, entomologists, pathologists, and managing foresters, as well as conservationists and wildlife biologist in general.

FIRE ECOLOGY OR ADAPTATIONS: Fraser fir occurs in habitats that are rarely subject to wildfire. Anecdotal evidence suggests that forest fires often stop when they reach the spruce-fir forest boundary .In the southern Appalachians, fuel moistures and humidity are usually high, and therefore fires are not intense or widespread [26,29].FIRE REGIMES: Find fire regime information for the plant.

The boreal ecocline (ca 49°N) between the southern mixedwood (dominated by balsam fir) and the northern coniferous bioclimatic domain (dominated by black spruce) may be explained by a northward decrease of balsam fir regeneration, explaining the gradual shift to black spruce dominance.

Canopy fir trees at most sites established prior to arrival of moose on Isle Royale around At high fir density release from growth inhibition was common following a period of low moose numbers from the mid—s to early s.
