Douglas Fir Tree
Fast-Growing, Ornamental Evergreen
Douglas Fir, Pseudotsuga menziesii, is a popular, and versatile evergreen tree. Whether using one as a Christmas tree for the holidays, or placing one as a focal point in your front yard, the Douglas Fir is sure to please and delight the senses.
Its natural inclination is toward a symmetrical, pyramidal shape that will certainly lend an understated elegance to your landscape. The bluish-green needles occasionally take on a delightful yellowish-green hue, contributing to its ornamental appeal.
You’ll love running your fingers over the soft texture of your Douglas Fir’s needles, and enjoy the slight silver cast of their undersides as the light catches them. Douglas Fir even smells wonderful! Roll a few of the needles between your fingers for the sweet surprise of its pleasing aroma.
Douglas Fir trees are found in its native habitat on the slopes of the Rocky Mountains, so it’s a particularly hardy tree and grows in a variety of soils. It’s lovely in its natural form, but also amenable to sheering whether you’d prefer a dense cone or even a compact hedge.
The Douglas Fir tree has no significant disease or pest issues to be concerned with, so you won’t have to fuss with sprays or treatments.
For a fast-growing, hardy evergreen tree that is versatile and relatively care free, you can’t go wrong with a Douglas Fir.
