About Abies procera ‘Skunk Tail’, a Noble fir. We were walking along an old logging road at dusk, on our way back to the car, and there was an opening along the trees along the side of the road. Dusk is the best time to spot variegated trees…there it was! So beautiful from afar! Mike looked through the binoculars and exclaimed “It’s striped! Looks like a skunk tail!” We scurried down the hill to get a closer look! Sure enough, beautiful variegation, and with cones, some variegated!
