What is the difference between red fir and yellow fir?
Yellow fir and red fir are both the same species. (douglas fir) It goes like this they are identical until the tree reaches a mature age.(Somewhere between 80 and 180 years old, depending upon location, elevation and soil type) Then the outermost growth rings start to reflect a yellow color. Prior to this stage the wood is red. So a red fir turns into a yellow fir once it reaches a certain age. Any subsequent growth will be yellow wood. The heartwood and any inner rings will remain red. The yellow colored wood is put on as the tree continues to grow.
Asked in Trees
Is fir ever green?
Fir wood is brown, like most wood. The needles of fir trees, however, are indeed often green. You may be asking if fir is an "evergreen", and the answer to that is also yes. All members of the pine family are evergreen except for the larches and the golden larch (which isn't a "true" larch, and is actually more closely related to the firs than it is to the other larches).
