Douglas-fir is one of the English common names for evergreen coniferous trees of the genus Pseudotsuga in the family Pinaceae. Other common names include Douglas tree, and Oregon pine. The common name Douglas-fir honors David Douglas, the Scottish botanist who first introduced P. menziesii into cultivation at Scone Palace in 1827. Douglas is known for introducing many North American native conifers to Europe. The hyphen in the name indicates that Douglas-firs are not true firs, not being members of the genus Abies.
This vintage silver collectible souvenir enamel spoon of Oregon measures nearly 4.5" in length, weighs .2 ounces and is marked on the back of the handle with FORT USA.
