Re: White spruce?
I thought white spruce didn't hold it's lower branches unlike Norway Spruce? Read that a few times over at the QDMA forums.
Anyways, on my land which is sandy loom the white spruce grow very poorly. I planted 100 from the PGC 3 years ago and don't think any are over 20". I also have had 80% die off or were eaten. White pine on the other hand are growing very vigorously. The only downside is deer eat and rub them to death unless you put some rigid mesh tubes around them or the white bud caps on the top.
If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy JM
