November 24, 2008. Rural Virginia.. Different types of Frazier fir trees grow in a tree lot just over the border in Virginia from Ashe County, NC..  Farmer Robertson looks over the trees to see which types might be best for his retail Christmas tree farm.. The types have been separated on the farm, to test which families of trees, from slightly different areas of the state, grow the "best" to be sold commercially. The project is sponsored by NC State University, which does many experiments with tree types at the School of Forestry..
