I'd appreciate some suggestions as to the I.D. of this tree. It is growing on the east slope of the Cascades near Merritt. The hanging cones and dark green needles suggest it is a spruce tree, but the grey bark with horizontal slashes looks like that of a fir to me. The tree is 30 feet tall and the trunk in the photo is 6 - 8 inches in diameter. My handbook, "Plants of Southern Interior British Columbia...." (Parish, et al.) is not helpful. Hybrid?
