Fraser fir was named for John Fraser (1750-1811) a Scot botanist who explored the southern Appalachian Mountains in the late 18th century. Leaves (needles) are flattened, dark green with a medial groove on the upper side and two broad silvery-white bands on lower surface. These bands consist of several rows of stomata (pores). The needles are 1/2 to 1 inch long, have a broad circular base, and are usually dark green on the upper surface and lighter on lower surface.
