    I've read this plant can "naturalize" and even become invasive. Where has this occurred and under what conditions? I'm a 'Board Certified Master Arborist' with 40 years experience. I've never germinated or observed such a tough and robust first year conifer germinant(let alone a fir)as this species. I'm very impressed! ..........Comments?
