Black spruce

Black spruce
(Picea mariana)

from Alaska and Canada

Picea mariana, the Black Spruce is the most emblematic and common species of arctic and sub-arctic landscapes all over Canada and Alaska, where it covers very large land surfaces. The black spruce might be the king of adaptation, as it easily acclimates to any soil conditions and to the hardest frost. It can grow as a slim tree up to 20 meters tall in the South of Canada as well as a dense short and bushy tree of 6 meters of height in the far north.

This species is available with a license for the PlantCatalog.
