Red Fir (Abies magnifica)

Abies magnifica, the Red fir or silvertip fir, is a western North American fir, native to the mountains of southwest Oregon and California in the United States. It is a high elevation tree, typically occurring at 1,400–2,700 meters (4,600–8,900 ft) elevation, though only rarely reaching tree line. The name red fir derives from the bark color of old trees. Red fir is a large evergreen tree typically up to 40–60 meters (130–200 ft) tall and 2 meters (6.6 ft) trunk diameter, rarely to 76.5 meters (251 ft) tall and 3 meters (9.8 ft) diameter, with a narrow conic crown. The wood is used for general structural purposes and paper manufacture. It is also a popular Christmas tree. Source: Red fir (Abies magnifica)
