Douglas fir

Pseudotsuga menziesii


Long-lived, very tall evergreen tree with large diameter that is usually the climax growth in the Cascade and Coast Range mountains in Oregon. Large forest fires such as happened a few years ago in this location will create sunny areas which will regrow in fir within a few years. This old growth trunk represents many centuries of growth.


Rainy, temperate climate, high mountain pass in the Cascades. This particular tree was on the Hackleman Old Growth Trail in the Santiam ranger district.
