One of large group of North American evergreen conifers introduced into Britain during the 19th Century.  Douglas Fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii) was discovered by Archibald Menzies (Pseudotsuga menziesii), although it was another botanist, David Douglas (Douglas Fir).  A fast-growing, large tree, and a common feature in large gardens and policy woodland.  Of note is its foliage which when crushed releases an rahter attractive, aromatic citrus scent.  An important timber tree in Britain.  Expect a final height of 59m (197ft).

Woodland Design Principles - The creation of a Pinetum or Conifer collection

Typically, Douglas Fir may be planted as an individual tree or as an avenue of trees.  Estate and Policy Woodland plantings from the 18th Century often found this tree planted along with other North American conifer species.  Today, 150 years later these trees form an amazing sight and we think that this tree worthy of planting to achieve the same effect for future generations.   

Benefits of using our plug plant trees

Our trees are sold as plug plants, in other words the roots are encased in compost. This means that planting can be carried out at any time of the year, provided they are watered in periods of drought, compared to bare-root plants which can only be planted during the plants normal dormant period (November to March).  All of these trees are UK grown, which is important for successful establishment

See What Our Customers Are Saying About Our Douglas Fir

September 2013: The trees made it fine as far as you were concerned. I have been in Scotland all week trying to catch fish and killing things. I told our handy man cum gardener cum everything to expect the trees unfortunately my wife or housekeeper (his wife!)  got there first and put them in my office where I found them an hour ago on my return BUT I have rescued them and dunked them in a pale of water so they are fine. Might just be an Idea to mark the parcel with Live Trees IN VERY LARGE LETTERS for idiotic wives housekeepers etc. 

Site Conditions And Evergreen Tree List
Our tree chart details which site conditions suit which trees and also which are evergreen or semi-evergreen.

Feeding Or Fertilizing Hedges
This is a task that can easily be over done. Any nitrogen based fertilizer will do such as 20:20:10 but the longer lasting ones which take 18/24 months are better as they are regulated by the weather and moisture therefore release slowly.

Woodburning Chart
If you are one of those lucky people that lead an eco lifestyle (VERY jealous if you are) and want to buy trees to burn, then maybe our wood burning chart (excel spread sheet) will help you decide. Ash, Eucalyptus Gunnii and Willow are worth looking at for their growth rates and calorific values.

Planting Tool
If you are looking to plant lots of plug plant or cell grown trees (the 10-40cm-ish) size range then maybe you should consider our tree planting tool. Tree planting rates of over 700 per day achievable.

Adding A Bit Of Colour And Attract Wildlife
Honeysuckle (Lonicera periclymenum) is very attractive, fragrant and attracts more wildlife to your garden. A bit on the vigorous side but worth the effort. A great addition to your project. 

Tree Spacing
Broadleaf wood planting would be around 3m between each tree. Christmas tree planting for a commercial crop is around 1m.
