Our collected Douglas Firs (Pseudotsuga menzeisii glauca) have awesome bark, and great short needles. Perfect for bonsai! This is a species that is quickly gaining popularity with bonsai enthusiasts! Be sure to consider a Doug Fir for your collection if you live in the Northern parts of the US. These are a high mountain tree, so they may not do well in the South, unless you get a significantly cold winter.

This little Douglas Fir will be fun to style! It will quickly become a great little bonsai in anyone's collection!
First up here is actually not a Douglas fir, but our one and only (to date) Subalpine Fir (Abies lasiocarpa). These are even more of a high mountain tree than Douglas fir, so if you get really hot summers and don't get a cold winter, we don't recommend this tree for you. These are very rare to find with aged bark in our neck of the woods; it's actually not uncommon to see full grown SA firs with perfectly smooth bark, so you know this one must be old and has faced many challenges. It's certainly a character filled little tree!
This Douglas Fir will make a very nice classic literati. Stunning old bark and a few deadwood accents, paired with the lush green foliage makes for a striking image!
