White spruce offers privacy and acts as a great windbreak to the north/north-west of your house or yard. Small cones cluster toward the ends of branches near the top of the tree. Cones tend to open in early fall, exposing the seeds and attracting birds like chickadees, American goldfinch, cedar waxwings and red-breasted nuthatches.
