Conifers (such as pine and spruce) add much needed colour to our drab winter landscapes.

Now, during these cold winter days do we see the value in adding conifers such as pine, spruce, and hemlock to our landscapes. They add the green to an otherwise monochromatic environment. They also add height and wind break in open areas. Consider White pine (P. strobus), Canadian Hemlock (Tsuga), Scotch Pine (P.Syvestris) for a species hardy for our area.
