While Christmas trees may be the first thing you think of when seeing Douglas firs, the lumber from these trees is actually extremely useful! Douglas fir is highly favored by builders everywhere because of its ideal building structure. The Douglas fir trees that this lumber comes from are naturally self-pruning, which means their wood has fewer knots and long, consistent fibers. These qualities also mean that Douglas fir has an unmatched amount of elasticity and an extraordinary weight to strength ratio. You really can’t go wrong with this type of lumber.
