Why would you want this tree? Excellent back row shelterbelt tree

White Spruce has a uniform conical crown with branches that spread or droop slightly and extend to the ground. This tree grows in a surprising number of locations but prefers moist, well drained, silty soil in an area that is partly shaded and is best grown in the north or east row of a multiple row shelter belt.

Trees planted in a single row or a south or west facing row seem to take forever before they start reaching any height. Trees grown in the full sun will only add 1 foot of height or less per year while trees grown on the north side of a building receiving the rainwater from the roof can grow as much a 4 feet in a single year.

Because of its ability to thrive in a variety of climates and soil types, the white spruce is widely regarded as the conifer of choice in many shelter belts in northern Canada.

Like all conifers, White Spruce should only be planted on the north side of a building where they will not shade the winter sun from hitting the house.
