    As the debate spread west into Montana and the coastal Douglas-fir region, public concern for over-harvesting and visual impacts – society’s new felt necessities – increased rapidly. Congress responded by passing laws and regulations that made active management increasingly difficult.

Imported 'Douglas fir' is not a difficult timber to dry on arrival in this country or in Europe, because the moisture content has already been reduced prior to shipment with some selecting out of degraded boards.

Suggested. tending into trie timber stands will serve a quadruple runction, principally as arterials for hauling out the big logs, but also as yarding and loading thoroughfares for prelogging and relogging operations, and for fire protection.

The cost, therefore, can be charged to those four items: prelogging, mainlogging, reiogging,14 and fire protection The rail mills, on the other hand, are equipped with large dry kilns, elaborate planing and matching facilities, and good-sized seasoning yards.

Thus there are three distinct types of Douglas fir mills: the strictly cargo mill, the strictly rail mill, and the combination mill.

In this, almost all of the lumber tested over, pieces achieved the level of performance reuired. Douglas-fir in the Rocky Mountains (Hermann and Lavender ; Arno ).

In the northern part of its range, IDF is limited by cold, especially growing season frost. In dry ecosystems such as the Interior Douglas-fir zone (IDF) of British Columbia, Douglas-fir is the climax species (Arno ; Hope et al. Interior Douglas-fir grows in File Size: KB. Douglas-fir. Douglas-fir can be used for roof trusses and framing, internal panelling, and glue laminated beams.

As well as being popular for light timber framing, the larger dimensional stock is sought after for exposed interior posts and beams because of its good stability and freedom from twist.

Also known as British Columbian pine or Oregon pine, Douglas Fir is a light reddish-brown in colour with prominent growth rings and much lighter coloured sapwood.

Easy to work with both hand and machine tools. Having a medium texture, this wood is tough, moderately hard and has a /5(6). Yields were estimated by the Prog- nosis Model for Stand Development, version Esti- mates are provided for plantations of Douglas-fir (Pseu- dotsuga menziesii), western larch (Larix occidentalis), and grand fir (Abies grandis) and for natural stands in the grand fir-cedar-hemlock ecosystem.

Today Douglas- fir is also grown for Christmas trees. Wildlife: The winged seeds are eaten by western squirrels, the red tree mouse, and the dusky-foot woodrat. The foliage and twigs are browsed by antelope, mule and white-tailed deer, elk, and mountain sheep. Douglas fir is only moderately durable, and both sapwood and heartwood resist impregnation with preservatives.

The timber lacks termite-resistance and sapwood is susceptible to lyctid borer attack. Douglas fir is commonly found as sawn timber in weather-protected heavy construction applications such as mining timbers, posts and ed: kg/m³.

Douglas-fir Shrinkage and Dimensional Stability Douglas-fir is an important building timber in North America, particularly in the Pacific north West, where it has a reputation for being naturally dimensionally stable – the ability to “season well in position” and retaining its shape during use (WWPA, ).File Size: KB.

approximatelyDouglas fir transplants each year. Coillte, the Irish Forestry Board, currently manage an area of over 8, hectares of Douglas fir. Uses & Markets Douglas fir produces a distinctive timber with a reddish brown heartwood and well defined growth rings.

Douglas fir timber is often traded as "Oregon pine". Its. Guide to Reforestation in Oregon. College of Forestry, Oregon State University, Corvallis. 48p. This manual describes the rules for reforesting after harvest of small woodlands, gives guidance for the decisions the landowner must make, and gives step-by-step instructions for planting and taking care of.

Supplied Timber Information Douglas Fir. General Description: Douglas Fir is a very popular softwood species due to its strength and versatility. We stock both timber from North America and Europe. Whilst the two sources are of the same botanical species, they vary somewhat due to the climates in which they are on: U Malahide Road Industrial Park, Dublin, IE.

A combination of superior wood quality and high productivity has made Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii [Mirb.] Franco) one of the premier timber trees in the world. As such, it is grown as a plantation species in several countries in Europe, South America, New Zealand, and Australia, as well as throughout its extensive natural range in western North by: The Douglas Fir Use Book is intended for the use of architects, engineers, and students preparing for these professions.

The chapters include lumber grades, working stresses and stress grades, design data, structural glued laminated lumber, wood preservation, and design loads. The tree has a pyramidal outline, with the lowest branches bending to the ground under open conditions and which would obviously tend to encourage knotty timber, but under controlled forestry conditions this should not eventually apply, bearing in mind that the full life of a ‘Douglas fir’ is many centuries, something like years in fact.

It has an excellent strength to weight ratio and the highest rating of any western softwood for extreme fiber stress in bending. Many builders worldwide prefer Douglas fir for framing timbers. It is truly the ideal, general-purpose softwood species for timber framing in residential.
