Douglas Fir, scientifically known as Pseudotsuga menziesii, is a popular evergreen conifer species native to western North America. The name is misleading since it is not a true fir but named after Scottish botanist David Douglas. It is often used as a specimen tree or in mass screenings and is a popular Christmas tree. Its quick growth and useful wood make it the crop of choice for many timber companies. The tree produces seeds which are an important food source for small mammals. It grows in coastal regions from British Columbia to central California and can be found in the Sierra Nevada mountain region. The interior Douglas fir can be found in the Cascades of northern Washington and southern British Columbia. Coast Salish language refers to it as lá:yelhp.
