Robust Beauty

Douglas FIR

Douglas fir, much like larch, is one of the hardest softwoods. Due to its stability, it is commonly used not only in residential but also in commercial settings.

Douglas fir planks are produced in impressive lengths of four to five meters, with widths of up to 30 centimeters. Douglas fir is available as both planks and wide-planks.

In the natural oil finish, Douglas fir retains its reddish undertone. However, when it is lye-treated and white oiled, the surface appears significantly calmer and cooler.

Origin and Distribution

The Douglas fir is named after the botanist David Douglas, who, in 1828, brought the first seeds of the “Oregon Pine” from North America back to Europe in order to reintroduce them there. In some natural locations in North America, it now reaches impressive heights of up to 100 meters.

In Europe, heights of up to 50 meters with a trunk diameter of one meter are possible. The age of a Douglas fir can range from 700 to 1,000 years. This wood is particularly popular in the construction sector due to its dimensions.
