Sitka Spruce

Picea sitchensis

New for 2024!

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.

  • Mature height: 80′ to 160′
  • Mature width: 20′ to 40′
  • Light conditions: full sun
  • Soil: well-drained; moist
  • Sold in bundles of ten bare-root plants, 12″+ tall

Bare-root plants are dug when they are dormant and are sold with sawdust around the roots instead of soil, packaged in plastic bags to keep them moist.
