A medium sized native conifer with a narrow, spire like crown. White Spruce can grow up to 25 meters (75 feet) in height. The needles are short (1.5 – 2 centimeters), stiff, sharp, and four-sided. White Spruce will grow in shade or full sunlight and in all types of soil. The White Spruce is Manitoba’s provincial tree.
The Scots Pine is widely used in North America. Scots Pine can grow up to 30 meters (90 feet) in height. This tree has a large, long, conical trunk which spreads into a broad domed crown. The heavy, short branches grow outwards from the trunk giving the tree a weather beaten look. The needles are 4-8 centimeters long and are in clusters of 2. Scots Pine can grow in a wide variety of soils, however they do best on well-drained clay and loam soils. This tree requires full sunlight.
