Picea rubens

Well suited to the moist, cool climate of the Northeast, red cedar is a beautifully shaped conifer that reaches 70-100 feet in height and 30-40 feet wide.

 

A highly desirable native tree for supporting wildlife, the Red Spruce provides a nesting site for birds along with its impressive usage as food for all kinds of wildlife. You can distinguish the Red Spruce from others by the reddish color of its bark.

 

Red Spruce is an important timber product, and has a rich history of usage by native peoples and European settlers, from ornamental to practical and medicinal purposes.
