PSEUDOTSUGA

The two trees described here are quite similar, but they differ greatly in status—the first is little known, while the second is the most prominent tree in the Pacific Northwest.

Pseudotsuga macrocarpa

Native to Southern California. Stout-trunked tree to about 60 ft. tall and 30 ft. wide. Needles are similar to those of Pseudotsuga menziesii. Cones are much larger, reaching 4 to 7 in. long, 2 to 3 in. wide; three-pronged bracts on cones barely protrude from each side.
