Douglas Fir

Scientific Name: Pseudotsuga menziesii
Other names: Douglas Spruce, Oregon Pine, Red Fir


Douglas Fir is a medium to large North American softwood that has found its way across the globe due to its versatility, strength, and commercial value. Historically significant in the timber industry, it has played a critical role in construction and woodworking for over a century.

The name “Douglas Fir” honours David Douglas, a Scottish botanist who first documented the tree. It’s important to note that despite its common name, Douglas Fir is not a true fir, spruce or pine.
