Common Types of Evergreens in the Northeast Region

Discover What Makes Each Tree Unique

When you think of attractive trees, you can’t help but think of evergreens. Unlike deciduous trees that transform with each season, evergreens are unchanging but that doesn’t make them any less beautiful. Rather, thanks to their consistent nature, evergreens are the perfect trees to plant on your property as they will ensure your yard maintains some visual interest, even in the middle of winter. Not only are these trees aesthetically pleasing, they also provide wildlife, like birds and small animals, a safe place to take shelter in every season. 

Types of Evergreens

If you are looking for a simple way to enhance your landscape, planting evergreens is a good place to start. Even if you don’t believe you have a green thumb, you can take comfort in knowing that evergreens are extremely sturdy trees. They thrive even in poor soil conditions since they possess the unique ability to continue processing any food that is available throughout the year. Here are some of the most common evergreens found in the Northeast region: 

  • Pine Trees: When identifying the types of evergreens, pine trees are usually what come to mind first. While most of these trees are cone bearing and have long needles, pine trees are not all the same. For instance, the Eastern White Pine is a fast-growing species that can reach 80 feet in height and beyond, which makes it an ideal choice if you desire more shaded areas around your property. Conversely, the Pinyon Pine is a slow-growing tree that typically only reaches between 12-15 feet in height. Therefore, these types of evergreens are excellent for growing in pots or rock gardens. 
  • Spruce Trees: Unlike Pine trees, Spruce trees grow shorter needles and hanging cones. Some of the most popular Spruce tree options include the Norway Spruce, Colorado Blue Spruce and White Spruce. The Norway Spruce has dark green foliage and thrives in cool conditions. The Colorado Blue Spruce trees are known for their pyramid-like shape and blue-gray needles. Both types of trees can grow to reach 60 feet, unlike the White Spruce which is ideal for growing in pots or along the perimeter of your home.  
  • Fir Trees: Some of the most common Fir trees that belong to the evergreen family are the White Fir, Douglas Fir and Fraser Fir. White Firs appear to have a silvery gray-green foliage and look especially attractive when planted alongside darker colored evergreens. Both the Douglas and Fraser Fir trees are the perfect evergreen to have in your home as a Christmas tree.

Why Overgrown Tree Branches Should Matter to You
