To make fir trees beleivable they shouldn't be hard edged. I guess the best way would be to use a brush whose bristles are split and dry brush. Make sure you don't only use green. These trees contain some broenish areas. Burnt Sienna would be most suitable.
Also fir trees and and evergreens do not look good standing alone. I suggest you group three or more together blending them in one mass. Variation of size is important as well. I hope this answers your question, if not I would be happy to send you a demo.

Thank you for your idea on Fir Trees. I would most certainly like to see your demo on painting trees, I am sure it would be most helpful.

Better yet - why not put it in ArtSchool, for the benefit of all? :-)
