The Douglas fir is one of the tallest, most important and valuable trees in the world. An evergreen (i.e. a plant that has leaves or needles in all four seasons), the Douglas fir grows best in the moist, temperate climates of the western United States and Canada as well . Frederick Douglass was born a slave but died a free man. Douglass was born in Talbot, Maryland during the year His first master, and who was possibly his father, was Captain Anthony.

  When you’re shopping around for Douglas fir, one of the things you’ll hear advertised often is “tight-grain” Douglas suppliers like AltruFir pride themselves on the clear, tight, vertical grain of the Douglas fir they sell, and they should--this lumber is stable, strong, and beautiful--among the best building materials you’ll find anywhere.

For example, over a year period a pinehardwood tract near Birmingham, Alabama, earned $2. 11 per acre per year stumpage plus $ per hour in labor, while sawtimber volume nearly doubled. Over an year period a longleaf pine tract near Brewton, Alabama, earned a net return of $3. 75 per acre while sawtimber volume increased by one-third.   Most of the large Douglas-fir trees that once grew on the coast are now gone. Douglas-fir is named for David Douglas (), a Scottish botanist and explorer. Douglas was a collector for the Horticultural Society of London, and over his lifetime introduced .

Second-Growth Douglas-fir. Photo by author. I recently had a new bowsprit made from douglas fir. After less than a year one side (south facing when berthed) has become very light and opaque, with loss of colour and grain texture. The attached photo shows the effect.

Other Common Names/Trade Names: None Scientific Name: Pseudotsuga menziesii Best Characteristics for Identification: Characteristic "plywood" odor. Scattered resin canals Uses: Plywood, construction lumber. General Natural Range: Two distinct populations.

Coastal population extends from central British Columbia south to central California. This characteristic of the tree's roots make it stronger and less likely to be tipped over. The Coast Douglas Fir experiences a rapid growth cycle as well as a long individual life cycle.

This allows for the abundance of trees which help it from dying out or becoming more scarce across the forests. Aside from these adaptations, older trees can. Start studying Frederick Douglass quiz. Learn vocabulary, terms, and more with flashcards, games, and other study tools.

In spring the spots turn reddish-brown, spreading over the healthy green part of the needle so that it appears scorched. Moist conditions promote its spread.

Also, what is the displacement of the top of. Question: A flat slab of Douglas fir wood mm thick containing 30 wt% moisture is bending dried from both sides (neglecting ends and edges).

Forty to year-old Douglas-fir stands in western Washington were harvested, leaving retention levels of 0, 8, 16, 24, 32, and 40% of full stocking. for coastal Douglas-fir, as it has fairly. The population of Douglas fir trees was shown to have an spproximately normal diameter distribution with mu = 50 centimeters (cm) and sigma = 12 cm.

Find the diameter d such that 30% of the Douglas fir trees in the population have diameters that exceed d. These involve pieces of Douglas Fir. The tensile strength parallel to the grain is 19, psi at 12% moisture content. Estimate the compressive strength parallel to the grain, the compressive strength perpendicular to the grain, and the tensile strength if the grain is 25° from parallel to the face of the lumber in the longitudinal direction.

Permethrin is the main ingredient found in many tick repellents of dogs, such as K9 Advantix® In a hypothetical population of deer ticks in eastern Massachusetts, there are some ticks that, due to a genetic mutation, have formed a resistance against the popular drug, Permethrin.The Coast Douglas Fir also plays host to hundreds of species of fungi.

Most of these relationships are commensal meaning the fungi benefits from living off of the tree, but the tree is neither harmed nor helped through the interaction. Some species, however, do cause harm to the Coast Douglas Fir.
