Fir trees are evergreen coniferous trees. They can be confused with other types of conifer. The way to tell a fir tree is by the way the needles grow, and by the cones. The soft needles are attached to the branch by what looks like a suction cup, and detach from the branch without leaving a peg behind. The fir tree cones grow upwards, like candles, rather than hanging down. They are softer than other coniferous trees, and they open up at the end of the season to spread their seeds. The trees can grow very large – up to 80 m. – and tend to be somewhat conical in shape. ‘Korean Fir’ is a small to medium-sized evergreen coniferous tree which can grow to 10–18 m tall, with a trunk diameter of up to 0.7 m, smaller and sometimes shrubby at tree line. The bark is smooth with resin blisters and grey-brown in colour. They have a dead-straight, upright trunk and branches that stick out firmly, all at exactly the same angle, clothed in dark needles that are silvery underneath. ‘Kohouts Icebreaker’ is a dwarf Korean fir. Like it’s parent plant, ‘Horstmann’s Silberlocke,’ ‘Kohouts Icebreaker’ has the same strongly-curled needles with silvery undersides that make the species distinctive. It grows to being a small, squat tree.Branches are short, stubby and radial. Young plants will be globose, later developing a leader, eventually becoming a small squat tree, typically 60 cms tall after 10 years
