The Trees at the Promenade Museum

The Spanish Fir Tree

It is also called the Mediterranean fir tree. It is a species more adapted to hot and dry climates than its temperate cousins such as the Silver fir tree.

Originally from Spain and northern Morocco, it was introduced into France at the end of the 19th century for the reforestation of southern regions.

Climate change promises it a bright future here.
