Grow Abies in reliably moist, fertile, neutral to slightly acid, well drained soil. Choose a position in full sun. A sheltered site with even light is preferable to ensure even growth and retain its elegant shape. Prior to planting, incorporate plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost into the soil to improve its structure and fertility.
In the first few years after planting, water Balsam Fir trees regularly, particularly during dry periods until they are fully established. Abies balsamea will naturally form a neatly rounded small tree. No pruning is required.
