Pine/Spruce Trees
The Pine Tree is a very common species in the in the upper midwestern part of the United States. Pine trees are conifers (evergreen trees) and reproduce using cones.

The pine trees have both male and female cones. The male cones are smaller than the female cones. The seeds mature in about two years. The mature seeds have winged parts that twirl and float in the wind. This allows the seeds to travel away to new locations where they try to grow. Although large quantities of seeds are produced, only a few ever grow into trees. Many seeds fall on areas where they cannot grow and others become food sources for a wide variety of birds and mammals.

Common types of Spruce and Pine trees in Wisconsin are
  • Austrian Pine
  • White Pine
  • Colorado Blue Spruce
  • Norway Spruce
  • Scotch Pine (Hemlock)
Like other trees, Pine trees are not immune to disease and malnutrition. Signs of a troubled Pine tree may be discoloring or large amounts of fallen pine needles, small holes in the bark of the tree and loose or peeling bark. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms with your Pine tree you may want to have it diagnosed by a professional certified arborist.
