DOUGLAS FIR

Coastal Douglas fir is found on the British Columbia south coast and across all of Vancouver Island except for the very northern part. Its heartwood is reddish in colour, while the sapwood is a lighter, yellowish colour. The grain is generally straight, although occasionally a wavy grain is present. Douglas fir is a strong, versatile species that can be used for a wide range of projects, from structural timbers to trim and flooring, cabinets, doors, windows, veneer and furniture.
