  • Description

    White spruce is a cold climate species, one of the first to colonize after glaciers recede. The waxy coating on its needles gives it a blue-green appearance. It is the most commercially important timber species in the far north woods, used for wood fiber, house logs, and musical instruments. In backyards it serves as important winter shelter for birds, and in forests it provides cover for moose, martens, and lynx. And, of course, it makes a perfect Christmas tree.
