Silver fir, Abies Alba

Family of pinacee

The ancient forests of the Apennines consisted of silver firs and beeches. Today it is possible to find silver fir in small fir woods, established for the reforestation, together with spruce.

Use
The buds of these two kinds of trees if left to infuse have beneficial effects in the cure of catarrh. Many abbeys prepare digestive liqueurs with the infusion of silver tree and spruce buds.
