Pseudotsuga menziesii

Douglas Fir trees, Pseudotsuga menziesii, are large and vigorous evergreen conifers. They are great for very poor soil, as long as the site is not dry. Mature trees in the open have a lush, attractive canopy.
Douglas Fir is not suitable for a clipped hedge.
It can be grown as a screening tree up to about 55+ metres high. It is a good, tall windbreak tree.

Browse our variety of large garden trees or view our full range of trees for sale.

Douglas Fir saplings are only delivered bareroot, during winter (Nov-March).
All of our young trees and shrubs are measured by their height in centimetres above the ground (the roots aren't measured).

General description of Pseudotsuga menziesii plants:

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.

History & uses:

The Douglas Fir is also called Oregon Pine in the timber industry. It was discovered 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.
