Flora of Cornwall (1999)

The descriptive text, below the map, is from the Flora of Cornwall (1999), which was a Tetrad Atlas (the maps had 2km square dots or Tetrads). The map on this web page depicts the plant's distribution at the 1km square scale and shows the records made pre-2000 which were used in the 1999 Flora and those made since.

Pseudotsuga menziesii - Douglas Fir

The majority of records of Douglas Fir are of planted trees in conifer plantations such as Cabilla Wood (SX16H, 1996, M.Atkinson), Wareham Woods (SX37Z, 1989, R.J.Murphy) and Hustyn Mine Park (SW96Z, 1996, I.J.Bennallick). There are also instances of self-sown seedlings, as in St. Clement's Wood, near Truro (SW84J, 1993, D.T.Holyoak) and Dunmere Wood (SX06P, 1980s, R.Margetts).
