Description

This evergreen specie is native to the coastal forest of British Columbia. In old growth forests, Douglas Fir can grow into an incredible imposing tree – 75 m (245′) or more in height is not uncommon. They provide nesting and living quarters for many birds and small mammals and their seed is eaten by a wide range of small mammals and birds. Douglas Fir is a very important timber source and is used extensively in reforestation (the fast growth rate makes it a popular choice) and for use in naturalization and reclamation projects.  They grow best on deep, moist sandy loam soils.

How to Grow

85 seeds/gram. Stratification of tree seed occurs naturally outdoors through the winter. Sowing tree seeds outdoors in the fall takes advantage of this natural effect. To stratify indoors, mix the seed with a moistened, sterile, peat based soil in a container, wrap in a ventilated bag, and place it in a refrigerator for 12 to 20 weeks. In the spring plant seeds into a sheltered spot outside to grow into seedlings. Transplant to permanent site when well rooted.
