Picea glauca

White Spruce

Tall, stiff-needled, pyramidal trees, spruces grow in almost any soil. Use the larger types in park or landscape plantings. The slower-growing species are better in the garden. Planted close together, their dense foliage makes an excellent windbreak. Spruces lose their lower branches fairly early in life, and their crowns thin as they age. The pendent cones grow year-round. Easily transplanted.
