Hemlock, Canadian 

  (Tsuga canadensis) Native and Deer Resistant

A 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. Performs best in deep 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 14 inches of annual growth over the past ten years.

  18-24" high (potted): $38

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). Offers 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 and reaches 50 ft. tall and 30 ft. wide at a rate of 12 to 18 inches annually.

 3-4 ft. tall (potted): $55

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.

  2-3 ft. tall (potted): $45

  3-4 ft. tall (potted): $60



Spruce, Serbian 

  (Picea omorika)

The best choice for established landscapes that don't have enough sun or space for other evergreens, and one the few spruces that tolerates partial shade. Offers narrow, pyramidal form, reaching only 20-25 ft wide at maturity, and 50 ft. tall. Glossy, lustrous yellow green needles (see above, middle picture) that stay green all winter and resist foliar diseases that commonly afflict blue spruce in our area. Cones are smaller, at around two inches tall and are an ornamental purple when emerging (see immediately above) turning to a shiny brown. Will grow in most soils, except those that are continually wet. Grows slowly, adding 12 inches annually. Widely regarded as one of the best specimen evergreens for combining elegance and adaptability. 

  2-3 ft tall (potted): $55



Out of Stock

We're out of stock of the following evergreens currently, but would be happy to notify you when they're in stock again.


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 Wisconsin's forest primeval. Easy to grow in local soils provided they're well drained. Thrives in full sun and is known to tolerate shade for up to 20 years.

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.
