Douglas Fir (Green)- 4" Plantable Peat Pot
Green Douglas Fir
The Green Douglas Fir is a stiff pine that will remind you of the holiday season. You'll find this tree growing in the Western region of North America. This tree needs a hardy planting zone that is at an elevation above 6,000 feet with moist soil. This tree also needs plenty of sunlight to reach its full growth potential.
If the conditions are ideal, the Green Douglas Fir can live anywhere from 500 to 1,000 years! This tree is one of the strongest around. It can survive a forest fire and come out with just blackened bark thanks to its thick bark.
Regarding looks, the Green Douglas Fir looks like a typical Christmas Tree. Of course, the sizes will vary depending on the tree. Mature Green Douglas Firs would be much too big to bring inside for a Christmas tree. Individually, Green Douglas Firs can reach up to 200 ft tall and tower over other trees in the forest.
The Green Douglas Fir produces cones that are green when first grown but tend to turn grey with time and age. The cones measure between 1 and 3 inches long.
The shape of this tree is pyramidal when it starts to grow. As the tree ages, the pyramid shape begins to disappear, and the tree broadens at all heights.
The needles on the Green Douglas Fir are flat and pointed. They are generally green with a yellowish tint to them. The needles have a typical pine scent that you can smell when you are near the Green Douglas Fir. If you are looking to boost their scent, you can crush the needles to get the most of their scent.
As previously stated, the bark is quite durable on Green Douglas Firs. This is because it gets thicker over time. It starts as a brown color with red tints, but as the tree gets older, it can become dark brown.
