This cut of Douglas Fir is very popular among designers and architects for it's straight line grain and durability.
Douglas fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii) is an evergreen conifer tree species native to western North America. It is named after Scottish botanist David Douglas, who first discovered it in the Pacific Northwest in the early 19th century.
Douglas fir trees can grow up to 330 feet tall and have a very straight trunk with a narrow, spire-like crown. The bark is rough and gray-brown, becoming thicker and darker with age. The needles are flat, sharp-pointed and grow along the stem in a spiral fashion. They are usually blue-green on top with whitish-blue undersides.
Douglas fir conifer cones are pendant, 3-4 inches long, and have distinctive bracts that protrude from between the scales. They are often used in crafts and holiday decorations.
The wood of Douglas fir is highly valued for its strength, durability, and versatility. It is used extensively in construction, furniture making, and paper production. Many species of wildlife also rely on Douglas fir trees for habitat and food.
Overall, Douglas fir is an important and iconic tree species of the western United States and Canada, prized for its beauty, utility, and ecological value.

Fun Facts about VG Douglas Fir:
The decking at the historic Fort Davis in Fort Davis, Texas is made from VG Douglas Fir. It's held up very well for a very long time out there in the dry climate.
