Quotation Mark image

Douglas Fir (DF) is often the standard against which all other framing species are measured. It possesses superior strength-to-weight ratio, high specific gravity, excellent nail and plate-holding capability and excellent dimensional stability. The moderate decay resistance of its heartwood, documented excellent performance record against strong forces resulting from winds, storms and earthquakes, have given Douglas Fir its reputation. Color, grain pattern, texture, knot size and type are addressed in the rules for appearance grades. The Douglas-Fir tree grows at about 200 to 250 feet tall (60 to 75 meters) with average tree trunk of 5 to 6 feet in diameter (1.5 to 2 meters).

It is abundant and widely available in second and third-growth stands yielding products in multiple grade classifications: dimension and other framing products, engineered structural products such as MSR, finger-jointed, and glu-lam products, high (clear) to low (economy) grade appearance products and industrial/ specialty grades. DF doors, manufactured from products in the Factory & Shop grade classification, are renowned for their beauty and performance.

Douglas Fir's light rosy color is set off by its remarkably straight and handsome grain pattern. Sapwood is white to pale yellow; heartwood is russet with high contrast between the springwood and summerwood. While similar, Western Larch is slightly darker in color, with the heartwood being a reddish brown and the sapwood a straw brown.

Douglas Fir grows throughout Western forests with the most abundant region being in the coastal climates of Oregon, Washington and northern California. In the Inland Region, east of the crest of the Cascade Mountains, Douglas Fir and Western Larch often grow in intermixed stands. Usually marketed separately in the appearance grades to provide more options for the marketplace, coastal and inland Douglas Fir and Western Larch share similar structural performance characteristics and are often combined in dimension lumber structural products.
