The Douglas-fir has been the major Christmas tree species used since the 1920's.

Nationally, it remains one of the most popular Christmas trees species.

The branches are spreading to drooping, the buds sharply pointed and the bark is very thick, fluted, ridged, rough and dark brown.

The needles are dark green or blue green, 1 to 1 inches long, soft to the touch and radiate out in all directions from the branch. They have a sweet fragrance when crushed. It takes 10 - 12 years to grow a 6 - 7 foot tree.
