Comments: Well, spring this year has blown me completely off course! It's June and we're getting torrential rains, flooding, washed out roads and even some touches of snow. So I'm a bit behind with almost everything. But so are the trees, so maybe I can still catch up!

Here's an interesting comparison:

The top photo is of a Colorado spruce, taken in June, 2009. The tree did not have a transplantable root system, so I left in place and took a photo, which was on my previous website for many years.

This June, 2019, I stumbled across the tree again. Notice that the foliage is much sparser and some of the trees in the background are missing -the result of a harsh climate, years of drought, and beetle infestation.

This year was very wet, so the tree might begin regaining vigor. It would be interesting to track it.

103. Tree # 103S20.  Species: Colorado spruce. Estimated age: 50 years. Collected 2017. Price: $150. Estimated shipping: $40. Comments: A cool, small, old spruce.
