Spruce VS Fir Trees
I have this square area on the front right of my house that is aprox 50' x 50 that I would really like to plant some evergreens. I have done a lot of research and have chosen coldstreamfarm.net as who I will be going with because they have good ratings and they have all the species of trees I was considering.
For spruces they have: Norway, Black Hills, Blue and white
For Firs they have: Balsam, white, douglas, fraser
I would really like to plant a mixture of stuff. Main reason for them is just to create privacy from the street. I was thinking maybe 4-5 in that 50x50 foot section. Then a few different kinds out back.
About the site:
50/50 mixture of rock/clay and good soil
I would like something that doesn't have a lot of disease problems and something that the deer probably won't touch. Not required, but it would be nice to have something that retains somewhat of a pyramid shape most of its life. I'm not sure if I should stick with all spruce or all fir or a mixture of the two.
