Scientific Name: Pseudotsuga menziesii
Nativity: Western North America
Named after the Scottish botanist David Douglas, the Douglas-fir is actually not a true fir at all. It is the state tree of Oregon and the second tallest conifer in the world. However, it is one of the world’s top timber-producing trees in the world and yields more timber per tree than any other North American tree. It is also a popular Christmas tree throughout most of the US. Native Hawaiians built canoes from Douglas fir driftwood that drifted from North America.
