Douglas Fir Seedling Plugs
Douglas Fir established themselves as the primary Christmas Tree in the US early in the 20th century, and are still widely used as Christmas trees. Today they are almost universally harvested from tree farms, and not from the wild.
They grow rapidly, and can reach heights of over 200 feet during a lifespan which can surpass 1,000 years. Douglas Fir feature soft gray-green to blue-green needles, which carry a very pleasant aroma when cut or crushed.
They can survive fires due to their thick, nearly impregnable bark, and do well in somewhat wetter sites.
