Also known at the blue Spanish fir. They grow very slowly, but are one of the most drought-tolerant fir species once established. In nature, the Spanish fir is limited to dry, montane elevations between 3,000 and 6,000 ft within the Spain/Morocco region. The species is in decline due to a number of factors: limited natural range, droughts, fungal/insect pathogens, and fire suppression. Cannabis cultivation also encroaches on the native range of the Spanish fir. It is currently listed as endangered by IUCN Red List. They are protected under Spanish law regionally and many stands within Spain are included in protected areas.
