Piceae rubra-Red spruce


SKU: piru Category:


Red spruce grows in two very different places in Maine, but not in between; along the immediate coast and in the mountains. What is it about these two seemingly dissimilar habitats that appeal to this species? I’ll have to ask one of the trees next time I see one. Slender growing tree to about 40ft or more. Said to be good for making musical instruments like violins. As all of our native spruce, they provide excellent habitat for birds and provide food for a great number of animals. Don’t plant poorly suited Colorado blue spruce or other non-native conifers if you live by the ocean, make the natural choice and plant red spruce.


3 gallon pots, 3 ft high for $55 each
