In a Nutshell:

* The specific epithet, menziesii, is after Archibald Menzies, a Scottish physician and rival naturalist to David Douglas.
* It is planted as a specimen tree or in mass screenings. It is also a popular Christmas tree.
* The Douglas fir's useful wood and its quick growth make it the crop of choice for many timber companies, which typically replant a clear-cut area with Douglas fir.
* Douglas fir seeds are an extremely important food for small mammals. Mice, voles, shrews, and chipmunks consumed an estimated 65 percent of a Douglas fir seed crop following dispersal in western Oregon. more...

Var. glauca is the commonly cultivated variety of this tree for areas outside of the Pacific Northwest, and is clearly a better selection for midwestern climates than the species because of its better cold tolerance (species is hardy to USDA Zone 6, but var. glauca is hardy to Zone 4). more...
