Pinaceae -- Pine family

    Peggy D. Crawford and Chadwick Dearing Oliver

    Pacific silver fir (Abies amabilis), also known as silver fir  and Cascades fir, has a gray trunk, a rigid, symmetrical crown, and  lateral branches perpendicular to the stem. It contrasts strikingly with  the more limber crowns, acute branch angles, and generally darker trunks  of its common associates Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii), western  hemlock (Tsuga heterophylla), and mountain hemlock (T.   mertensiana). The species name, amabilis, means lovely.
