Douglas Fir


Douglas-fir is a huge and stately evergreen conifer, the largest member of the pine family, in fact. The tall, straight trunk can be free of branches for a third of its length. The bark on young trees is smooth and ashy gray; that on mature trees is reddish brown and broken into longitudinal plates.

Douglas-firs, with their dense foliage and symmetrical pyramidal form are attractive ornamentals, used extensively as specimens and wind breaks
