Black Hills Spruce is a subspecies of White Spruce native to the Black Hills of South Dakota. It has a strongly conical form, slower growth rate and denser foliage than typical white spruce, making it preferable as a specimen tree for smaller suburban lawns. It also responds well to pruning, and can be used as a hedge or even bonsai.
The Black Hills Spruce is a long time favourite of our Seed Plant Manager. She sees hundreds of varieties of different trees, but this one is her favourite.
These two-year-old seedlings have spent the first year in a greenhouse and the second outdoors in our bareroot fields. The fine mop of roots make these easy to plant and a great choice for any large scale project where competition may be an issue.
Our seed plant manager's favorite tree!
