Also known as Oregon Pine of Douglas Spruce, the Douglas-fir is named after David Douglas, the famous Scottish botanist who described it in 1829. One of the largest trees on earth, second only to the redwoods of California and Oregon, Douglas-fir can reach heights of 116 metres (385 ft) and diameters of 4 metres (15 ft). It can live for over 80 years.

Originally growing in dense, cathedral-like stands on the east coast of Vancouver Island and parts of the southern mainland coast, most pure old-growth Douglas-fir forests have been harvested. However, given its great value, Douglas-fir has been extensively replanted throughout its growing range.

The incredible strength of this wood makes it valuable in practically every type of construction work: houses, boats, poles, posts, bridges, flooring and flag poles. Douglas-fir has also been used in tanning leather and is a popular Christmas trees. This tree typically grows in sunny areas in well-drained soils.
