Hardy, symmetrical and naturally dense evergreen. Needles 1/2" to 1", blue-green, angled and sharp tipped. Important for timber and Christmas trees; also used for erosion control and site reclamation because it is adaptable to wide range of planting sites but prefers moderately well to well-drained loamy soils. Grows well throughout New Hampshire. Mature height to 70'.
