Douglas fir

Pseudotsuga menziesii

Description:

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.

Habitat:

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