[a.k.a. Douglas-fir, Douglasfir]
You are here: Nurserymen > Plug Seedlings > Douglas Fir Plug Seedlings
Douglas Fir have been planted as lumber/timber stock for decades, and established themselves early in the 20th century as one of the primary species grown as Christmas trees.
Today Pseudotsuga menziesii are almost universally harvested from tree farms, not from the wild, and have been one of the backbone species of the lumber industry for hundreds of years. This species thrives in its native environments of the western United States, from California to its true stronghold of Oregon and Washington.

Curiously, this species of Fir is not a “true fir”, despite its overall similar appearance to the true firs [the Abies genus of Fraser Fir, Balsam Fir, etc.], hence the “pseudo” in its latin name.
Pseudotsuga menziesii plug seedings grow rapidly, and can reach heights of over 200 feet during a lifespan which can surpass 1,000 years. The diameter of this species at maturity can be astounding [5-6 feet in diameter], rivaled only by the famous California Redwoods. They feature soft gray-green to blue-green needles, which carry a very pleasant aroma when cut or crushed.
True giants of the forest, Douglas Fir can survive fires due to their thick, nearly impregnable bark. This species can be finicky when young and prefers moist soil in partial shade, but will adapt to drier locations once mature by developing deeper tap roots. Once established, they love full sun and will come to dominate an ecosystem by towering over nearly all other plants in the ecosystem.Individual Packaging Options:
