Douglas Fir

·         Native tree to our western states but grows well in northern Michigan


·         In ideal conditions, can grow to 300’ tall


·         Not suitable to plant in landscapes – but a spectacular tree to enjoy on your property by your grandchildren! Douglas Fir is a true specimen tree you can be proud of.


·         In smaller forms, often harvested for Christmas trees – soft fragrant needles


·         Plant it in full sun, acidic to neutral, moist, well-drained, organically rich soil.  Keep it well watered since it is intolerant to drought
