The Story

The White Spruce is a forest tree of the northern states and Canada that can reach 100 feet tall in the wild. In 1904, two men found some White Spruce seedlings in Alberta, Canada like none that anyone had ever seenthe needles were extra-short and the growth was extremely tight and congested. The two men were Alfred Rehder and John George Jack of Harvard’s Arnold Arboretum, and they sent the seedlings they collected back to Boston. One of the little trees survived the 2,700 mile move and became the hugely popular Dwarf Alberta Spruce we know and love today.

The Details
