Black Spruce

Picea mariana


(new stock expected: fall of 2018)

Black Spruce is a medium-sized coniferous tree that tolerates wet ground better than most - if not all - spruces.

These qualities make Black Spruce an excellent tree for wet areas.

Black Spruce is known for its characteristic straight trunk and a narrow crown.

This tree is distinctively narrow and upright in its growth and the needles smell distinctly like a Christmas tree. Black Spruce essential oil is currently quite popular.
