Because of its resemblance to the California red fir and the noble fir, the Shasta fir or silvertip in southwest Oregon and northwest California has caused some misunderstanding. They thrive in the cold, damp woods at higher elevations above 4,500 feet. The Shasta fir, like its assumed progenitors, is shade intolerant, although it may be more fire resistant than the noble fir. The young silvertip is a highly desired Christmas tree because of its attractive form and color and its ability to keep its needles. It is a desirable timber tree because of the quality of its wood.
