Sitka Spruce

Picea sitchensis

Roughly conical in shape, Sitka Spruce has very prickly bluish to yellowish-green needles. These sharp pointed needles were once thought to ward off evil thoughts. Sitka Spruce is a valuable habitat tree and landscape specimen. This important riparian species can grow quickly in the right conditions-along streams and in cool moist floodplain areas.
