Douglas-Fir

Pseudotsuga menziesii • Coast Douglas-fir, Common Douglas-fir, Green Douglas-fir, Douglas

Native

The species native to Canada has 2 varieties – one of them being a coastal variety which occurs on the Pacific coast from central British Columbia to California. The two varieties of Douglas-fir occur in quite different ecosystems. The Interior variety grows in a variety of habitats including open forests with pine-grass and mosses beneath. On the coast, the forests are much more productive.

Leaf

Evergreen, remaining on the tree for 5-8 years; flat, flexible, 2-3 cm long, grooved above; often sharp-pointed; narrowed at the base into a slender short stalk, upper surface bright yellowish-green, lines of white dots beneath. Needles spirally arranged along the twig; on horizontal branches, spreading out from the sides in 2-3 ranks. Resin ducts (2) visible in cross section.

Fruit/Seed

Conelets borne in the upper part of the crown, in leaf axils near the forward end of previous year’s twig. At pollination, oblong, about 30 m long, green to purple to red, erect, short-stalked, with distinctive 3-pronged bracts extending beyond the scales and partially obscuring them. After pollination, the cone stalk bends downward. Mature in late summer of 1st season.

Bark

Gray, smooth, thin, resin-blistered when young; becoming deeply furrowed with irregular, broad, dark reddish-brown ridges; up to 30 cm thick.
