Douglas fir organic
The Douglas fir ( Pseudotsuga menziesii.) is an evergreen tree that reaches heights of over 60m. The age can be 400 years. The tree belongs to the pine family. Its original home is the west coast of the USA. The Scottish botanist David Douglas brought the tree to Europe in the 19th century, hence the name Douglas fir. Its approx. 4 cm long needles have a pleasantly aromatic scent of forest with a citrus note.
In Europe it reaches heights of growth of 60 meters. The tallest Douglas fir that has ever been found was 133 meters high; this is far taller than any tree still standing today (the tallest one is currently a Coast redwood from about 116 meters in California). The strongest specimens reach a trunk diameter of 4 meters at the base. The Douglas fir forms a relatively slender, conical crown.
The Douglas fir grows rapidly and can reach a maximum age of 400 ( Pseudotsuga menziesii var. glauca ) to over 1400 ( Pseudotsuga menziesii var. menziesii ) Years.
