Commonly Planted Conifers - New York/Pennslyvania
Recently took a trip thru parts of these two states from Philadelphia to Watertown to Niagra. Was surprised at the number of Colorado Blue Spruce I saw planted in yards everywhere. Are any of these trees "escaping" and going wild?
Also observed an even greater number of green/dark green spruce planted also. Were these most likely Norway Spruce or is there some other native spruce that is widely planted there?
Was also surprised at the complete dearth of Eastern Red Cedar planted in New York. Did see a few in Pennslyvania. Any particular reason these aren't used much other than all the other conifers are just better?
Loved the Hemlocks in the wild but didn't notice a lot of them planted. Is there a reason they aren't used a lot?
Any other conifers used a lot up there?
