Douglas Fir Characteristics
The Douglas Fir is a pyramidal shaped evergreen. When young, the trees have branches nearly to the base of the trunk, making them a popular choice as Christmas trees. With age, Douglas Firs lose their lower branches giving them a long bare trunk with the pyramidal shape maintained throughout the rest of the tree. The needles are a deep green color bringing standout winter interest - especially with snow.
Douglas Firs grow best in moist to wet soil with plenty of space to grow.
Though smaller than their wild counterparts, landscape varieties still grow up to 80'. This makes them perfect for large lawns and public parks where they can add texture to a landscape or serve as borders and windbreakers.
