We are the white spruce, tall and strong!
We will shout, all day long!
This hearty tree covers most of Canada with its beautiful short needles. You know it is a spruce as both “short” and “spruce” start with an “S”. Known for having a very complex root system, the White Spruce can find water in most conditions and is able to weather droughts well. Interestingly, this is the most northern tree found in Canada – it reaches all the way to the Mackenzie Delta. Surprisingly, the White Spruce is considered exotic in the UK and has been farmed for decorations.
