White Spruce

Latin Name: 
Picea glauca

The white spruce is a common northern-climate tree that has blueish-tinged needles. These trees are commonly grown as Christmas trees and can live for up to 350 years. The bark, branches, buds and seeds are a common meal for deer, rabbits and birds so make sure to protect them well as seedlings.  Minimum order: 5 plants
