Engelmann Spruce
Siberian Fir

Engelmann Spruce is a tall, cold resistant tree native to western North America. This high-altitude mountain tree has characteristic loose, scaly bark ranging in colour from reddish-brown to grey.

Birds such as grouse, woodpeckers, nuthatches and thrushes will call this tree home. As Engelmann Spruce can exceed heights of 100 feet, consumers should note it is too large for a normal city lot.

Siberian Fir is an evergreen tree best known for its strong aroma. This tree's needles are popular for essential oils and aromatherapy. It also grows softwood that is used for furniture and wood pulp. This species is very cold hardy and shade tolerant.

This species is bright green and conical shaped. Most interesting is its upright blue cones that fade into brown as they mature.
