Pseudotsuga menziesii var. glauca (Douglas Fir, Dougfir)

These beautiful trees look quit different from "pine trees," and are common in our mixed conifer forests. The Dougfir of the Pacific Coast (Pseudotsuga menziesii var. menziesii) is a real giant, over 250', while ours tops out at under 200'.

 

 

The cones of Dougfir appear to have little mice trapped in thier bracts.

The needles of Dougfir do not grow in bundles, but singly.
