Grand Fir (Abies grandis) – is native to the Pacific Northwest and Northern California. It is one of the tallest firs often reaching 300 feet. Grand fir is popular as a Christmas tree. It produces a full beautiful tree with thick foliage when sheared and is known for its strong fragrance. In most areas, it will produce a marketable tree in eight to ten years. Its lumber is a softwood. It is used in paper-making, as well as construction for framing and flooring, where it is desired for its resistance to splitting and splintering.
