Douglas Fir 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.
How to propagate Douglas Fir
Seed sown in autumn or spring (but forms selected for leaf colour do not come true).
Evergreen current growth cuttings in autumn to spring. Deciduous softwood cuttings in summer.
