Still a very popular Christmas tree in southern California, the Douglas Fir are a relatively full tree with dark or blue green needles, 1 to 1 ½ inches long, soft to the touch and radiate out in all directions from the branch. They have a sweet fragrance when crushed.
The Douglas Fir is light in weight compared to the Noble Fir, yet can support ornaments on the inner part of the branches. This tree has excellent needle retention.
Douglas Firs are native to central California, western Oregon and Washington, parts of the Rockies and extends north to Alaska.
