Douglas Fir


North America, Europe (especially Germany)


The heartwood is colored a fresh yellowish brown to reddish yellow - although it quickly darkens when exposed to light, becoming brown to dark red.


Largely straight fibers with a medium fine and uniform texture. Depending on how it is cut, it has a marked crown-cut pattern or stripes.


The modern veneer per se; owing to its frequently distinct crown-cut and striped pattern, it is particularly good for decorative interior finishing, such as wall and ceiling paneling, stairway steps and banisters, doors and furniture making. Furthermore, as construction wood for outdoor buildings, docks and harbor facilities, shipbuilding and railroad crossties.

Light, bright, friendly, modern.

Did you know ...

... that managed forests, thanks to their high proportion of young, strong, growing trees, enable CO2 to be extracted?

... that an old, unmanaged forest produces as much CO2 through processes of decomposition and decay as it stores, and that therefore an unmanaged forest contributes nothing to reducing global CO2?
