Description

Pitcea sitchensis. Pinaceae family. This tree species is a confier-- it bears needles instead of broad leaves. It can reach towering heights of 225'. Needles are about 1" long and hold a blueish tint. They are stiff and sharp! Be careful when handling them. If you grab it unknowingly you'll be sorry, but you'll also never forget this species! This tree lives in lowland forests. I found it to alongside the trail near water at my site.

Picea sitchensis, the Sitka spruce, is a large coniferous evergreen tree growing to almost 100 m tall, and with a trunk diameter at breast height that can exceed 5 m (see List of superlative trees.
