Care Tips - Growing:
Avoid applying fertilizer in fall as this may cause a new flush of growth that will not harden off for winter. A maintained mulch ring will slowly add nutrients to the soil, avoiding the need for fertilizer application. White Spruce can tolerate some shade, but this significantly reduces growth and density. For best results in a landscape setting, site this evergreen where it will receive at least 6 hours of direct sunlight. White Spruce struggles in areas of excessively high pollution or salt spray and should not be sited along busy streets.
Care Tips - Pruning:
Shearing is not necessary when the tree is healthy and properly watered.
Care Tips - Soil:
Tolerant of many soils except constantly wet. More tolerant of poorly drained and nutrient-deficient sites
