Blue Spruce Trees -Not a Good Choice in Horsham Pa.

from: Bill Hirst

Blue spruce trees have been reported to be suffering from the
Blue Spruce Rust in the Horsham Pa. area. This Rust is difficult
to control. For this reason alone I would suggest that you NOT
plant the Blue Spruces.

If my farm were run like a democracy and one man one vote
applied for whether we should plant or sell Colorado Blue
Spruce, the vote would 100% against the Blue Spruce Tree. The
Blue Spruce also known as Picea pungens Engelm is noted for
being majestic, stately, with its silver blue color and
symetricle form. Its color can range from blue to green. The
color variations are genetic traits of the tree. For uniform
color from tree to tree one should use grafted cuttings, which
command premium prices. The Blue Spruce is widely planted
througout the US because it is tolerant to a variety of site
conditions. It has good drought, wind, and cold tolerance. The
Blue Spruce finds uses such as wind breaks and as an ornamental
in landscape designs. Deer don't prefer to eat these trees
unless they are very hungry. Now you would think that this tree
would get our vote. But my boys hate to work with these trees
because they can be brutal on transplanting. Like wrestling with
a porkupine! You can see more of Bill's plant talk at his web
