Overview

Pseudotsuga is a genus with around 4 hardy, evergreen coniferous trees from forest habitats in China, Japan, Taiwan, Western North America and Mexico. These species are tall-growing, reaching a height range of 20-120m and serve as important sources of commercial timber. Foliage is reduced to linear needle-like leaves and these develop from characteristic scaled buds. Frequently they are referred to as Douglas Firs or Oregon Pines and these are commonly grown as showy specimen trees.
