Perfect for privacy screens and natural windbreaks, Black Hills Spruce plug seedlings are a slow-growing, compact tree, and slow growth equals very dense growth. Unlike many of the faster growing evergreen species, you cannot see through Black Hills Spruce as the tree matures. It’s short bright bluish green needles and a dense, conical shape makes this evergreen species a landscaper’s friend.
Black Hills Spruce plug seedlings are virtually immune to the most common spruce pests and is very tolerant of drying winter winds. These characteristics make this species ideal as an ornamental, privacy screen or windbreak if you have some patience with it’s slower growth. Black Hills Spruce can reach heights of 80 feet over a life span of up to 300 years.
Although named after the South Dakota region in which it is naturally found, Black Hills Spruce plug seedlings actually thrive in a much wider range of cooler, moist regions, including states as far south as Georgia if planted at a higher elevation.
PLANT IN RECORD TIME:
Watch how to plant evergreen seedling plugs faster and with less effort than any other type of “bare root” evergreen tree. With just a cordless drill, a garden cart or wheelbarrow, a 5 gallon bucket of water, and any old/dull/rusty 1 inch drill bit you have lying around, you can realistically plant one plug seedling per minute. Your back will thank us later 🙂
