Picea engelmannii

Engelmann Spruce

Engelmann Spruce along with Subalpine Fir forms the climax forest - a stable, self-perpetuating community - between 9,500 smf 11,500 ft. but it does grow lower into the aspens. At times all alone, its dark, dark green forms grow 50-100 ft., and the forest floor beneath is covered with its soft purply cones. Plant out - no pretreatment needed.
