Carefree Natural Privacy Screen

Black Hills Spruce, Picea glauca 'Densata', is an ornamental evergreen conifer.  These would be ideal for use as windbreaks, privacy screens and accent plantings in your yard.

Your Black Hills Spruce tree is noted for its vibrant, dark green foliage and attractive, conical form. The density of its foliage will be a welcome addition to your landscape in those places where a little natural privacy is needed. 

Its dark green tone will augment lend some life to your dull, winter landscape.  Unlike some evergreens, your Black Hills Spruce tree won’t prove difficult when it comes time to mow lawn near it or perform other routine lawn work.  The needles are short and soft to the touch rather than abrasive.

A truly cold-adapted tree, the Black Hills Spruce is resistant to winter injury and performs well regardless of many harsh winter conditions.  It prefers rich, moist soil and full sun but will also thrive in dry, well-drained locations. 

You won’t have to fuss over it to enjoy a pleasing shape as it requires little or no pruning.  Deer will even leave it alone, so no need to bother with pest control or similar concerns. 

Black Hills Spruce can reach a height of six feet within nine years and is very long-lived.  In fact, some Black Hills Spruce have lived 150 to 350 years!  Planting one today is not only a terrific choice for a high quality landscape planting, but also an investment in the future.
