Engelmann Spruce
no image

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.

Iseli Fastigiate Blue Spruce is perfect if you are looking for colour all year. A cultivar of the Blue Spruce, it is also known as the Columnar Colorado Blue Spruce. The Iseli Fastigiate Blue Spruce is one of the more distinctive evergreens. Its foliage is blueish in the spring and blue/green in the winter. Best used as an accent tree, the Blue Spruce has a narrowly upright and columnar form with upwards forking branches.
