Overview:Categories: Evergreen, Proven Performer, Wildlife Value, Windbreak
Spreading evergreen, which can reach a mature height of 40-80 ft., it has adapted to a wide range of soils and once established, is drought tolerant.
Moderately fast growing, longed lived and winter hardy up to 7000 ft., elevations, it performed well in our area and has come to be a favorite for windbreaks.
While it does provide some food and cover for birds and small animals, it not a preferred forage for bigger game.
Use in central or leeward rows of multi-row plantings, or may also be used in single row windbreaks. Weak and brittle wood-strength may be a problem during heavy, late or early snows. Also an excellent Christmas tree species.
