Douglas Fir is the most popular Christmas tree grown in North
America. Although it exhibits many of the characteristics
of a fir tree, such as softer needles and excellent needle retention, the
Douglas Fir is more closely related to the Spruce family. In fact the Douglas
Fir is the only member of its biological family, that is, it is a species
unto itself and the only member of that species. All of our Douglas
Fir trees are organically grown.
It is native across a broad range of western North
America. Douglas Firs take seven to ten years to reach a height
ranging from six to nine feet. The Douglas Fir's superior needle retention,
very full shape, and pleasant aroma keep the species in high demand as a
Christmas tree. 2007 was an excellent
growing season for our Douglas Firs – they are especially full with a
deep blue green color. We have trees
from 5 to 11 feet.
To ensure your fresh-cut tree looks its best throughout the
season follow the Tree Care
directions we provide with each tree.
