Hemlock, Canadian

(Tsuga canadensis) Native

A most graceful evergreen: softer appearing than spruces and pines...it's also a tidy tree: featuring very small cones (to only one inch) for a conifer (see pic immediately above)...needles remain dark green over winter months...requires good garden soil and will grow in complete shade or in sun...can be sheared into a hedge or left alone it will reach 50 ft. tall and 30 ft. wide in the home landscape (picture above)...two trees planted in shade at Nikolay middle school in Cambridge have averaged 13 inches of annual growth over the past ten years.

   Available spring 2022

Pine, Austrian

(Pinus nigra) 

The best pine for recently-constructed homes given its tenacity: it easily withstands compacted soils and open, windswept conditions...features stiff needles and an overall formal appearance in youth but with time it builds character (see pic immediately above)...features bark that is considered one of the handsomest of all pines (see picture at top above)...smaller cones are between two and three inches long...reaches 50 ft. tall and 30 ft. wide at a rate of 12 to 18 inches annually.

   Available spring 2022

Pine, Eastern White

(Pinus strobis) Native

The iconic evergreen of northern Wisconsin...exuding less formality and greater character as it matures...features the softest and longest needles of any native evergreen...faster growing at 18-24 inches annually, reaching 60 ft. tall and 30 ft. wide under home landscape conditions...specimens over 100 ft. high are somewhat common up north; and the highest in Wisconsin is over 150 feet tall...trees reaching 200 feet tall were noted in the Wisconsin forest primeval... easy to grow in most soils provided they're well drained.

  Available spring 2022

Spruce, Black Hills

(Picea glauca densata)

An offshoot of our native white spruce but acclimated to harsher, dryer and more exposed growing conditions; as such it's a great choice for recently developed subdivisions...greater branch density (see above) than most evergreens suggest a more formal character...cones are much smaller than other spruces, reaching only one to two inches long...known to be slower growing than Norway spruce, they reach 30 ft. tall and 15 ft. wide in most landscape settings.

   Available spring 2022

Spruce, Norway

(Picea abies)

Fast growing, beautiful and adaptable evergreen...easy to grow in any well drained soil...withstands windswept, exposed areas...dark green, lustrous needles that keep their color even during the worst winters...four to six inch cones are colored an ornamental red when young (pictured middle, above) maturing to light brown (immediately above)...reaches 50 ft. tall and 25 ft. wide at a pace of 18 inches annually.

   Available spring 2022
