I plan on landscaping my back yard this yr. with 3 evergreen trees varieties. Does anyone know if there are dwarf Colorado Spruce or any pine (long needle) trees to plant for my area. I live south of Pittsburgh , Pa. area.

Google dwarf colorado spruce and dwarf long needle pine for varieties. If you click on the images tab you will even get photos.

Check out Picea pungens Fat Albert. It is a little smaller than the Picea pungens glauca. Also Picea pungens Montgomery. It starts out small and globe like and eventually grows more upright.

This is a nice site with many blue conifers including Montgomery. Copy and paste

It helps to have exact names to use in the search.

Here is a link that might be useful: Fat Albert

Thank You very much for your help! I live in zone 6 so, I will view the recommended sites to see which variety might be best. I was also thinking about the Alberta Spruce.
