Douglas Fir

The more expensive choice for the Northeast—but the popular and budget/local choice in the Northwest—is the Douglas fir. It's more portly in shape, with a paler green color, and soft needles—which make it child friendly. However, the limbs are a bit dainty and will bend under heavy ornamentation.

Needle color is either dark green or blue green and emit a sweet scent when crushed.
