Douglas Fir



Large Douglas Fir approx. 15' tall

        The Douglas Fir is the "signature" tree of the Pacific Northwest.  Grown for both lumber production and landscape beauty, these trees are great for a natural, more-rural barrier, or a stand-alone tree.  

         We deliver and plant trees throughout Washington:  Seattle, the "East Side", Bellingham, Vancouver (WA), east-of-the-mountains, etc.  Contact us for free estimates: info@NurseryTrees.com or (425) 343-2650.



Foliage:   Evergreen               

Mature Height:    70-100  ft.                 

Mature Width:     To 60 ft. 

Sunlight:  Full sun, partial sun.

Soil:.  Thrives in acid soil, alkaline soil.      

Growth Rate:  Medium, 1-3' a year once established, depending on growing conditions.       

"Instant Privacy" Use:  Natural barrier in a rural setting.  Avoid power lines, plan for growth.

"Instant Privacy" Spacing:  Because these trees are used for a "natural" look, they usually aren't planted in a straight row, but instead are "offset" in two or more rows, sometimes with uneven spacing to make the look as natural as possible.  Spacing between individual trees should be at least 12' (which is quite tight), and often is 20' or more. 

What to Expect the First Year:  As with all newly-planted trees, these need to be watered carefully through the first Spring/Summer--see our "Care of Your Trees" section for more details.  Not as much growth the first year because the tree is putting its efforts into its root system.

Comments:  A classic Northwest barrier.  Low maintenance.

"I am really pleased with your work.  You saved me several thousand dollars, steered me away from trees that wouldn't work, provided healthy and beautiful trees, did a great job planting them, and did everything on time and on schedule.  You can quote me."                                                                          Jo, Vashon Island

"Our privacy bank of trees has done nothing but grow well into maturity.  Our back yard and deck area is totally private and the 10 trees your team planted [in 2005] are rich, leathery and dark green.  We remark on them every day it seems.  Please include me in any of your "Testimonials" as you would be hard pressed to find a more satisfied customer."                                                                                                                  Jim, Port Orchard

"For quality vs. value, your trees are the best landscape purchase I’ve ever made."    Jeff, Seattle

"I work in customer service so I know good service when I experience it and you have my top rating.  I would definitely recommend you to anyone who needs new landscaping.  Thanks again.”                    Carol, Camano Island

"By the way, the trees were a great privacy feature when we sold the last house!  We now have a much larger space . . . "                                                                                                  Katherine, Fall City

“My compliments to your crew.  We’ve had a lot of contractors working on our house recently and we’ve seen the entire range; and your guys were excellent. The trees make things look so much better—I started smiling as soon as I saw them going in."                                                                                    Holly, Queen Anne

"You guys are the best nursery I've ever done business with! And I have dealt with a few. You did what you said you would, on time with attention to detail rarely found. From the beginning of the quote process all the way through to the last detail you made it easy. And you work to ensure that the trees will thrive after planting with detailed advice, a complementary irrigation system, and a website filled with useful information. Most nurseries will just dump off the goods and tell you best of luck, put some water on them. You provide a quality product that sets you apart. Your crew was friendly, polite and operated as a well organized team. I would recommend you without hesitation! Thanks for doing a great job!”                                                                                                   Ryan, Buckley

"We can not believe how beautiful your trees are.  The privacy is unbelievable. If you ever need a testimonial let us know.   Our yard is perfect!  We sit there and say "my oh my”!               Suzanne, Tacoma 

"I don't think I've ever been as happy with something I've purchased."                           Sarah, Sammamish
