Abies grandis - Grand Fir
Grand Fir is a very large and stately evergreen conifer that has a very fast rate of growth.
It is one of several north west American species discovered by the well known plant hunter, David Douglas who sent seeds back to the UK in 1831.
Needles are dark green and grooved on top with two white bands. A very shade tolerant species that is ideally suited for underplanting in continuous cover forestry but it is equally as impressive when grown as a specimen tree.
