Pseudotsuga Menziesii, more commonly known as the Douglas Fir or Oregon Pine, is a big tree for large spaces. If you have room to accommodate this stately giant, it will reward you with decades of all year round beauty!

Discovered on the west coast of British Columbia in 1792 by Archibald Menzies, the first Douglas Fir trees were brought to the UK in 1827 by David Douglas. Its flat, dark-green evergreen needles, 1.5-3 cm long, have 2 white bands on the underside, and densely cover the branches. When crushed, they have a sweet resin scent. The cones are up to 10 cm in length, hanging down and starting as a pale yellow and maturing to a medium brown. In time, Pseudotsuga Menziesii will develop a thick, corky bark with attractive ridges. 

Hardy in all of the UK and northern Europe, Pseudotsuga Menziesii will quickly grow to a mature height of more than 12 metres and spread of more than 8 metres in 50 years, with the potential to grow much larger as time goes on. The Douglas Fir is the second-tallest tree species in the world and can live for more than a thousand years. The largest specimen in the UK was planted in Argyll in 1849 and is 60 metres tall! 

Pseudotsuga Menziesii should be planted in full sun in an exposed or sheltered position with a south-facing aspect, in well-drained acid to neutral sand, clay, or loam soil. It will not tolerate chalk soil or wet soils. Intolerant of salt spray, it should not be planted in coastal locations, but is tolerant of pollution and can be used in cities. Unlike Scotch Pine, Douglas Fir trees are deer-resistant, and so are a good choice for large country properties.

This big conifer can only be used where it will have lots of room to grow! One specimen would be a truly stately focal point in a large lawn. A row of Pseudotsuga Menziesii would make an excellent windbreak and privacy screen along the edge of a big property, and a grouping in a large prospect would create a magnificent picture from afar. If you have the room for this magnificent giant, Pseudotsuga Menziesii will reward not just during your lifetime, but for succeeding generations!
