Black Hills Spruce transplants, approx 10-18″ tall

Perfect for evergreen privacy screens and windbreaks, Black Hills Spruce is a slow-growing, compact tree with visually dense growth. Unlike many of the faster growing evergreen species, a Black Hills becomes a fantastic visual barrier and windbreak as the tree matures.

CLOSED for the summer, sales resume in late August 2024

It’s short bright bluish green needles and conical shape makes this conifer species a landscaper’s friend, one which can be planted and trimmed almost like a hedge. Once established, this species is a very tough tree, virtually immune to the most common spruce pests and very tolerant of drying winter winds.

Because of these characteristics, Black Hills are ideal as an ornamental, privacy screen or windbreak. With some patience with it’s slower growth, this species can reach heights of up to 50 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 actually thrive in a much wider range of cooler, moist regions. This includes states as far south as Georgia if planted at a high enough elevation.
