Engelmann Spruce
Meyers Spruce

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.

Meyer's Spruce is a popular accent tree with a distinctive and refined pyramidal form. This tree resembles Blue Spruce with its flaking bark and bluish-green needles. Meyer's Spruce can tolerate very dry conditions. This species is deer resistant.
