Douglas Fir

Pseudotsuga menziesii

The Douglas fir is a dense evergreen native to our area. It has a strong pyramidal shape when young and has a tendency to limb itself up as it matures. Its size will be difficult to control in urban landscapes so it is best to have adequate space for this large native tree. Needles are soft and occasionally have a bluish tint.
