Douglas Fir Seedlings
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.
NOW SHIPPING MON-THURS
Order by 9am EST and you'll **probably** get same day shipping on these specific trees as long as [a] our shipping schedule for the week is not already full, and [b] your trees will reach you by Friday [we don't want your box of trees sitting in a truck all weekend, potentially baking in the sun]. See our shipping page for more details. If you'd like to order now to guarantee availability but postpone your shipment to a later date, please specify that date in a follow up email after placing your order. Shipping season for these specific "bare root" trees closes at the end of May. If you need trees shipped later than that, please have a look at our various sizes and species of plug transplants and plug seedlings, which can be shipped at almost any time of year and are ridiculously easy to plant.
We offer cotton gift bag packaging and custom pendants for all sizes of bare root seedlings and transplants, sold separately in matching quantities.
