This fir tree is deer and drought tolerant, and only rarely encounters issues with pests and disease. There is no need to prune this low maintenance tree. How to Care Spring and fall are great times for planting your Blue Douglas Fir. Winter and summer are fine as long as you avoid extreme temps. The Rocky Mountain Douglas Fir thrives in full sun and adapts to any soil that is well drained. A neutral to acidic soil is best. If you know you have an alkaline soil choose an acidic fertilizer like Espoma's Hollytone. After planting, adding a layer of 2 to 3 inches of mulch will help keep the soil moist. Do not allow the mulch to touch the trunk as this increases the chances of pests and disease. Water your new tree deeply a couple times a week for the first month or two. After your plants are established, they only need watered when the soil is dry. This Fir is drought sensitive after establishing. Fertilize when planting and in early spring yearly with a slow release fertilizer. If your soil is on the basic side choose a fertilizer for acid loving plants. The Blue Douglas-Fir is wind, cold, and deer resistant. Landscape Ideas Plant as a specimen or focal tree for a stellar look. The Blue Douglas adds cool color and great texture. This long-living tree is perfect for a windbreak or privacy screen. Plant about 15 feet apart for a tight screen.
