Siberian Fir needle (Abies sibirica) essential oil comes from the Pinus tree which grows in wide areas of the former U.S.S.R, particularly Siberia in this case. The tree inhabits the cold climate on moist soils in mountains or river basins at elevations of 1900–2400 metres. It is very shade-tolerant, frost-resistant, and hardy, surviving temperatures down to −50 °C. It rarely lives over 200 years due to the susceptibility to a fungal decay in the heart wood.
