DOUGLAS FIR

Douglas fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii) is Canada's largest tree and comprises two distinct species: Coast Douglas fir and Interior Douglas fir. The sapwood is light in colour and of narrow width. The heartwood ranges from yellowish to reddish-brown. Earlywood and latewood have a pronounced difference in colour, the latewood having darker, more sharply defined bands. This colour difference results in a distinctive grain pattern when flat-sawn. The wood has a fine to medium texture, straight grain and is non-porous.

Douglas fir dries easily and rapidly, with little tendency to check and with good dimensional stability. The wood is hard, strong, straight-grained and seasons well. It machines reasonably well, has excellent turning properties, glues well and has moderate nail and screw holding ability. It is used to make more durable and stronger pallets.
