Spruce beetles infest Sitka, white, and Lutz spruce trees, and are rarely are seen in black spruce or Scots pine.

The Black Hills spruce grows to a height of 30–60' and a spread of 15–25' at maturity.
Growth Rate This tree grows at a slow rate, with height increases of less than 12" per year. I have a few spruce trees that are starting to overgrown some of my landscape areas.
I've heard that you can prune/trim these, but am apprehensive. One, can you trim spruce trees. If so, when is the right time of the year to do that. I'm assuming that if you can trim, you would only try to cut the leading tips where next years growth would.
Spruce trees are a type of conifer with extremely deep roots that make them difficult to kill. Unfortunately, spruce are susceptible to a wide range of diseases and insects that can kill parts of the tree and leave other parts healthy.
This causes an unsightly tree and runs the risk of passing diseases and infection to other trees on your property. Black Spruce is a medium-sized coniferous tree that tolerates wet ground better than most–if not all–spruces.

Learn more about how to prune dwarf spruce trees in this article. Coniferous trees with a disease problem should have their branches pruned about 5 inches ( cm) away from the infected portions, taking care to only cut live wood.
Gardeners should wait for a period of dry weather to trim ailing trees because this will reduce the spread of pathogens%(). The Pépinière de Saint-Modeste has set up a pilot project to industrialize the Bouturathèque system used for the vegetative propagation of genetically improved black spruce.
Black spruce, Picea mariana, is an ideal evergreen to plant in wet, soggy soil, because that’s where you’ll typically find it in northern forests.
Also known as bog spruce, swamp spruce, eastern spruce and shortleaf black spruce, this pyramid-shaped evergreen conifer is small to.
the best time to do this is in early fall. this will force the tree to thickin up next spring when the new growth comes out.
Watering depends on soil type if in sand you will need it alot when in the hot summer. where as if you are in clay you want to water less so the dont drown out.
Black Spruce needles, like the needles of other spruce trees, are also very hard, making it easy to poke or stick yourself with them. Like the needles of other spruce trees, Black Spruce needles needles have four sides, rather than two, which means that the needles of the Black Spruce are easy to roll back and forth between your fingers.
The natural growth habit of blue spruce is to have low hanging branches. There is no "should" about removing these branches. But I understand the difficulty with the mower. However, I can't imagine your lawn grows very well under the spruce.

First, why do you feel the need to cut off the top of the tree If left on its own, no it will probably never quite regain its pyramidal shape this is a process called "pleaching" and is used primarily to keep fruit trees small If you need to cut the top off due to poor planning, (such as planting a very small tree, too near a power line) you might want to consider moving the tree(a.
How to Shape a Blue Spruce. Considered one of the most popular evergreens, blue spruce (Picea pungens) is an ornamental tree featuring silvery blue needles, 3- to 4-inch pine cones and tan or gray. Prune hemlock lightly but often during the first few growing seasons (two to three times from late June to late August for two to three years).File Size: KB.
It gradually replaces quaking aspen (Populus tremuloides) which forms the lower border of the spruce stands. Black Hills spruce can be planted in the eastern one-fourth of South Dakota and many communities east of the Missouri River.
Black Hills spruce is a very long-lived species with a life span of to years. The species in Canada has. Black Spruce is a medium-sized coniferous tree that tolerates wet ground better than most–if not all–spruces. It has a characteristic straight trunk and a narrow crown.
