Our Forests



One of the sanest, surest, and most generous joys of life comes from being happy over the good fortune of others.

The edge were tree meets field creates a haven for all sorts of critters.

Black Spruce

Picea mariana

Black Spruce is one of our native spruces. Tolerates really wet soils so you find it in swamps. There it looks like a tree only a momma tree could love, with a tight cluster of branches at the top forming a club or crowsnest. However it does better on decent soil.

It is frequently found in cold, poorly drained areas, such as swamps and bogs, along with sphagnum mosses and horsetails. Natively it can occur in a pure group of trees or on non boggy sites with lodgepole pine and white spruce.
