What a beautiful tree! 
Firs are beautiful, but among them, Balsam Fir is splendid! 
It is, by far, not the highest one, but what a balance, what a crown, how graceful! 
Twenty feet tall and a two-foot large trunk. This pyramidal abietacea can easily reach the age of 150 and has become the emblem of New Brunswick in Canada. 
Its leaves are soft and tender. They don't prick. There are double white lines on the back side, which they use to breathe. They are called stomatal bands. And they have the singularity of an impressive organisation. 
 * On the sunny side of the tree, they begin to brush around the twig. That is to say that they grow nearly all around it (except underneath). 
 * From the shady side of the tree, they grow flat. They fit around anyway, but they are twisted so as to draw a "middle line" like a haircut from the 40s. 
It likes it when the soil is always wet and very cold climates, rising high to the north. Among Firs, Balsam fir is the one that grows nearest the pole. It stands as a windbreak to allow the useful wildlife in some countries, where it would be impossible for it to develop if there weren't trees. 
From time to time, in addition to reproducing by seeds, it layers naturally. That is to say that its lower branches, hanging down, tend to make roots and ... rebuild a new tree! 
It produces the sap (oleoresin) called Canada balsam which, once it has evaporated essential oils, provides a transparent resin whose refractive index is very close to that of glass and is therefore very useful to repair chips in windshields or bond optical lenses. 
It is also used for paper, Christmas trees and other varieties for nurserymen.
Recentres the heart and promotes love.
Puts oxygen into the lungs and boosts life during depression.
Confers verticality, momentum.
Helps you to surpass yourself. 
Stimulates acceptance of other people for simpler relationships.
Helps to go straight to the point.
