Pseudotsuga menziesii: Bareroot Sapling Douglas Fir Trees

Douglas Fir trees, Pseudotsuga menziesii, are large and vigorous evergreen conifers. Mature trees in the open have a lush, attractive canopy.

For such a big tree, the Douglas Fir has a fairly compact canopy, with downward pointing lower branches that do a great job of blocking out sight from about 5 metres off the ground when they are mature. Older trees have very thick, corky bark with lovely sinuous ridges.

They are not suitable for a clipped hedge, and can be grown as a tall windbreak and screening tree up to about 55+ metres high.

Delivery season: Firs are delivered bareroot during late autumn and winter, approximately November-March inclusive.


  • Use: Tall evergreen screening
  • Bareroot delivery only: November-March

Growing Douglas Firs

They are great for poor soil, as long as the site is not too dry: British rainfall should be enough for them. As with any tree that grows in dry conditions, it still needs watering to establish.

Did You Know?

Also called Oregon Pine, it's an important species in the timber industry. It was recorded by Achibald Menzies in British Columbia in 1792. David Douglas brought it to Britain in the 1820's. The largest Douglas Firs on record are an awesome 90+ metres tall. Its former names are Pseudotsuga douglasii and Tsuga menziesii.
