Douglas-fir is the name of an entire genus of trees that contains six species--two native to North America and four native to eastern Asia. Because of its similarity to other genera, Douglas-fir has given botanists fits. It has, at various times, been called a pine, a spruce, a hemlock, and a true fir.

Pinus contorta, with the common names lodgepole pine and shore pine, and also known as twisted pine, and contorta pine, is a common tree in western North America. It is common near the ocean shore and in dry montane forests to the subalpine, but is rare in lowland rain forests.
Mountain hemlock is a prevailingly coastal, high-elevation, tree species. It is a small- to medium-sized (exceptionally >45 m tall), evergreen conifer, at maturity with a narrow conical crown; leader droops only slightly, branches droop or spread but tend to have an upward sweep at the tips; dark, reddish-brown bark is scaly and divided into hard, narrow, flat-topped ridges.
Limber pine is an evergreen, coniferous species of tree that grows to mature heights of 40 to 50 feet (12 – 15 m) tall, with a straight to contorted trunk 24 to 36 inches (60 – 90 cm) in diameter, measured at breast height, and a conic crown that becomes rounded with age.
Predominantly in northeastern California, and into Nevada and Oregon, at 2,000–3,000 m (6,600–9,800 ft), upper mixed-conifer to lower subalpine habitats. Distributions of the subspecies in the United States are shown in shadow on the map. Distribution of ponderosa pine is from Critchfield and Little.
Tsuga (/ ˈ s uː ɡ ə /, from Japanese: 栂 (ツガ), the name of Tsuga sieboldii) is a genus of conifers in the subfamily Abietoideae. The common name hemlock is derived from a perceived similarity in the smell of its crushed foliage to that of the unrelated plant poison hemlock.
