Chandelier

MR DF Chandelier

So there are “open grown” Douglas-fir trees, which are trees that grow with little to no neighboring trees. They get full sun and develop full crowns that produce large limbs from the top to bottom. There is also a genetic variation among Douglas-fir that causes the lower limbs of some trees to grow excessively large limbs, often forming mini trees themselves. These are called chandeliers.
