Kinds of Trees Available

Ponderosa pine is noted for its full shape and long, graceful needles. It grows almost everywhere in the Hills.

Spruce grows at higher elevations and on wetter, north facing slopes and drainage bottoms. It has a classic tapered form and short needles that allow for easy stringing of lights and ornaments.

Juniper is a shorter tree found at lower elevations in the southern and western Hills. Many people like its full shape and blue-green color.
