Douglasfir 

  (Pseudotsuga menziesii v. glauca)

A difficult to find and attractive specimen evergreen...requires sunny, open conditions and well drained soils...grows 12 inches annually locally...reaches 50 ft. tall but stays narrow to only 20 ft. wide...interesting shaggy cones (pictured above) are 3-4 inches long...we offer the Rocky Mountain strain which is best suited to the Madison area.

Hemlock, Canadian 

  (Tsuga canadensis) Native and Deer Resistant

The most graceful evergreen: softer appearing than spruces, firs and pines...it's also a tidy tree, with very small cones for a conifer (reaching only one inch, shown immediately above) and petite needles that remain dark green over winter months, even during our coldest winters...requires good garden soil and happily thrives in heavy shade or sunny spots...can be sheared into a hedge or left alone it will reach 50 ft. tall and 30 ft. wide in the home landscape (pictured at top, above)...two trees planted in shade at Nikolay middle school in Cambridge have averaged 13 inches of annual growth over the past ten years.

  1-2 ft. tall potted: $28; 4 for $98

 

 

Pine, Eastern White

  (Pinus strobis) Native and Deer Resistant

The iconic evergreen of northern Wisconsin...exuding less formality and greater character as it matures...features the softest needles of any native evergreen...it's also the fastest growing evergreen we've measured locally: adding 18-24 inches of growth annually...reaches 60 ft. tall and 30 ft. wide under home landscape conditions...trees reaching 200 feet tall were noted in the Wisconsin forest primeval...easy to grow in local soils provided they're well drained...thrives in sun and is known to tolerate shade for up to 20 years.

Pine, Austrian 

  (Pinus nigra)  Deer Resistant

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

Sorry, but we've sold out of Austrian pine. Let us know if we can notify you when we have them in stock again: info@cambridgetreeproject.org

 

 

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...requires a sunny and open setting...known to be slower growing than Norway spruce, they reach 30 ft. tall and 15 ft. wide in most landscape settings.

 2-3 ft. tall potted: $28

 

 

Spruce, Norway 

  (Picea abies)

Fast growing, beautiful and adaptable evergreen...easy to grow in well drained soil with a sunny exposure ...withstands windswept, exposed areas...dark green, lustrous needles 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.

Sorry, but we've sold out of Norway spruce. Let us know if we can notify you when we have them in stock again: info@cambridgetreeproject.org
