Pseudotsuga

Fir - Douglas

The Douglas fir has a large pyramidal shape and straight trunk, growing to a height of 80+' in the right conditions. This evergreen exhibits smooth, grey-brown bark having gummy resin-filled blisters when young. As the tree ages, the bark becomes very thick and deeply grooved, with dark reddish-brown ridges. While this conifer should be in a wind protected area, the Douglas Fir does well as part of a windbreak or living snow fence.

Our plants come with extra large and fibrous root systems, ready to plant and flourish!
