Meyers Spruce
Red Spruce

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.

Red Spruce is a long-lived, shade tolerant conifer that grows naturally in eastern Ontario and the Maritime provinces. Hardiest in the eastern regions of Canada, this tree tolerates many soil types, moisture levels, and is low maintenance.

Attractive year-round foliage makes Red Spruce a nice ornamental tree for urban and rural landscapes. If you are considering creating a shelterbelt, privacy screen, or hedge in eastern Canada, this tree is an excellent option.
