Native to Southern British Columbia south along Pacific coast to California, also in central Idaho and eastern Oregon. Commonly found at low elevations in the area.

Also, this conifer is actually much larger than stated in the section above. It's name "grandis" means "LARGE" and it can get anywhere from 100-250 feet tall. It is very adaptable, too, and doesn't have much preference for soil type. It is sometimes grown as a Christmas tree.
