How To Care

Spring and fall are great times for planting your Dwarf Alberta Spruce. However, winter is fine as long as the ground isn't frozen and if you are in an area that has mild summers, like zones 2-5, summer is a great time to plant as well.

The Alberta Spruce thrives in full to part sun and adapts to any soil that is well drained. A neutral to acidic soil is best. If you know you have an alkaline soil choose an acidic fertilizer like Espoma's Holly Tone. After planting, adding a layer of 2 to 3 inches of mulch will help keep the soil moist. Do not allow the mulch to touch the trunk as this increases the chances of pests and disease. Water your new tree deeply a couple times a week for the first month or two. After your plants are established, they only need watered when the potting soil is dry. This Spruce is drought tolerant after establishing. Fertilize when planting and in early spring yearly with a slow release fertilizer. If your soil is on the basic side choose a fertilizer for acid loving plants. The Dwarf Alberta Spruce is wind, cold, and deer resistant. Be sure your tree is planted where it has plenty of air flow.

When properly cared for, the Alberta Spruce rarely has issues with pests and disease. If you notice brown dry spots on your Spruce Spider Mites may be the culprit. Treat with insecticidal soap for minor infections and Bifenthrin for more severe infestations. Do not use horticultural oil on Alberta Spruces. For more, learn about the top 10 Dwarf tree options.

Happy with the tree, NOT happy with FedEx. Shipped Tuesday 5/19, was SUPPOSED to arrive by Friday 5/22 but did not deliver until Monday 5/25. Thankfully, the tree arrived alive and is happy in the ground. 5 stars for PlantingTree!

This tree is going to make a big difference in my yard. The site is easy to use and the shipping is extremely fast (got the tree faster than I got stuff from another company) I would recommend them to anyone prices are also lower than anything around here.
