Engelmann Spruce
Christmas Blue 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.

The Christmas Blue Spruce is a popular choice for Christmas tree farms due to its strong scent and pyramidal shape. This is a cultivar of the Blue Spruce and is a cold-hardy evergreen tree with grey-blue needles.

The Christmas Blue Spruce is highly pollution tolerant, and is native to North America.
