      The effect of last summer’s () record-setting heat and drought is still being expressed by many trees throughout Michigan. A short drive around most parts of Lower Michigan will provide evidence of a bumper crop of cones on many spruce trees, especially white spruce, in yards and windbreaks (Photos ).   White spruce (Picea glauca (Moench) Voss) cone crops were measured at five regional centers in southern and central Yukon for 30 years at one site from to and at four other sites during 9 to 11 years to select the best climatic model that uses cues from growing season temperature and rainfall to predict the size of cone evaluated six climatic models that use summer.

It’s very hardy and easy to grow. Keep reading to learn more white spruce information, including tips on growing white.

      White spruce cones are longer and pointier. set by a tree that stands near where the Tolovana River empties into the Tanana River in Interior Alaska. Alaska’s largest black spruce stands up against national competition. The U.S. record is a foot black spruce in Taylor County, Wisconsin, according to the National Register of Big Trees. White spruce is quite popular for windbreaks and for use in the Christmas tree trade. The wood is used for lumber and in pulp and paper production. Like many evergreens, it provides food and shelter for many birds and mammals. How to Grow. seed/gram. Stratification of tree seed occurs naturally outdoors through the winter.

Research note PNW, 11. In interior Alaska, where white spruce seed is their primary food, red squirrels harvested between 10% and 69% of cones during a "medium" cone production year.

One red squirrel may cache up to 16, cones per year. In mixedwood forest in Alberta, red squirrels harvested % ± % of the cone crop over a 3 year period. Picea glauca, the white spruce, is a species of spruce native to the northern temperate and boreal forests in North America.

1957-68 book Picea glauca was originally native from central Alaska all through the east, across southern/central Canada to the Avalon Peninsula in Newfoundland. It now has become naturalized southward into the far northern United States border states like Montana, Minnesota. Spruce Tree Reproduction & Seeds.

A seed trap awaits for white spruce cone and seedfall. Traps are set out at the end of summer, and retrieved for seed counting in the spring. NPS Photo / Sarah Stehn. For each of 30 monitored trees, staff document yearly growth by measuring tree diameter and estimate overall cone production by counting cones produced in the current year (Figure 1).

Fruit, cone, nut, and seed descriptions. White Spruce has the smallest cones of any of the spruces, typically 1 to 2 inches long, cylindrical and pendulous, often clustered near the top of the tree. They are a medium green color throughout much of the summer, and turn brown in autumn and winter.

During one year period, seed fall for one white spruce stand exceeded seeds per square meter in 4 of these years. A spruce is a tree of the genus Picea / p aɪ ˈ s iː ə /, a genus of about 35 species of coniferous evergreen trees in the family Pinaceae, found in the northern temperate and boreal regions of the Earth.

Picea is the sole genus in the subfamily s are large trees, from about 20–60 m (about 60– ft) tall when mature, and have whorled branches and conical form. White spruce (Picea glauca) and Lutz's spruce (Picea × lutzii), a hybrid between white and Sitka spruce (Picea sitchensis), dominate the study area.

We measured the pre- and post-outbreak density of spruce in 3 m × 80 m plots across the study area by recording all live trees and all dead trees > m tall in each plot. Get this from a library.
