    Hi Tree ID Gurus,
    The tree service I got these rounds from said is was 'fir'. It doesn't look like the douglas fir I have seen before.

    Can anyone else positively ID this tree? See the three attached photos.

    Thanks

    I'd say spruce.

    It reminds me of White Fir i've seen in the Sierra Nevada, but i don't think White Fir should grow in coastal Washington. Grand Fir grows there and is supposed to be similar to White Fir. My guess is Grand Fir. I also guess it is a fairly lightweight softwood, but should season fast and burn hot.

    That looks like young limb bark. There are lots of fir growing in this area, but it would help to see some foliage to better determine which one.
