Firs (genus Abies) is a genus of 48–55 species of evergreen conifers in the family Pinaceae. They are found through much of North and Central America, Europe, Asia, and North Africa, occurring in mountains over most of the range. Firs are most closely related to the cedars (Cedrus).[1]


Garrick Ollivander's 'august grandfather', Gerbold Octavius Ollivander, always called wands of fir ‘the survivor’s wand,’ because he had sold it to three wizards who subsequently passed through mortal peril unscathed.[2]

There is no doubt that this wood, coming as it does from the most resilient of trees, produces wands that demand staying power and strength of purpose in their true owners, and that they are poor tools in the hands of the changeable and indecisive. Fir wands are particularly suited to transfiguration, and favour owners of focused, strong-minded and, occasionally, intimidating demeanour.[2]
