How Big Do Spruce Trees Get?
Though it depends on the variety you select, our Spruce Trees vary from slow and steady to fast, thick and dense. Either way, you get an easy-growing specimen with iconic, timeless good looks for your landscape.
How to Plant Spruce Trees
Specific directions will vary, but knowing your growing zone is important. After you’ve determined your growing zone, keep sunlight and watering needs in mind for your Spruce Trees. Most will prefer full sun (anywhere from 6 to 8 hours of sunlight per day) and well-drained soil, but make sure you check your tree's specific directions.
When to Prune Spruce Trees
Your fertilizing and pruning needs will vary as well, but most Spruces won't require pruning.
When you're ready to plant, select an area with well-drained soil, dig a hole large enough to accommodate your Spruce Tree's root ball (along with some extra width for mature growth), place your tree and back fill the hole. Finish the planting process by watering the surrounding soil near your trees and mulching to conserve moisture.
When to Plant Spruce Trees
Generally, we recommend planting your Spruce Trees in early spring or in fall. Either season is fine, however, provided the ground is not frozen.
Also, it's important to keep spacing in mind. Avoid planting your Spruce Trees too closely to sidewalks, structures and power lines, especially if the mature height and width are on the bigger side.
