Spruce Pine Trees
Plant Description:With a bushy, irregular canopy, the spruce pine is a unique option for customizing landscapes. On young spruce pines, the bark is soft but develops into flat plates over time.
However, the upper half of the tree and branch retains the smooth surface. As the trunk grows, it begins to twist around itself, creating an artistic underbody reaching up into the canopy. While there are many common pine trees, the spruce pine is known for the small branches that grow between larges branches and the twisted design it takes on over time.
Spruce Pines Are Essential To Wildlife
Squirrels eat the pine seeds, and other small mammals are known to use the tree as shelter. The Spruce Pine Tree grows pinecones that drop during the fall and are known for their evergreen needles that run along the branches.
Young spruce pines and White Pine Tree can be used as Christmas trees, while fully matured trees are perfect for parking lot buffers and shade trees in local parks. Known for its urban tolerance, the spruce pine is an excellent option for residential streets as they are sturdy and easy to maintain.
