Grand Fir - Abies grandis
Mostly confined to Washington state although also growing in northern Oregon, this is a tall fir (to 200 feet) with a domelike top in old trees. The needles spread to either side of the twig in a plane. Grand Fir grows in habitats that range from streambanks to cool mountain slopes. It is not unusual for old trees to reach 150 feet in height. The 4-inch cones are greenish to purplish. Shade tolerant, it will grow beneath sun-requiring Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii). With its glossy needles and symmetric form, it is a popular Christmas tree.
