As we prepare for another season of Fall Tree Wellness, another important insect pest to take note of is the White Pine Weevil. White Pine Weevil is a damaging pest to a broad range of conifers, including White, Scotch, Red and Austrian pine as well as Colorado blue, Norway, and Serbian spruce. Douglas-fir can also be attacked.
- Latin Name - Abies concolor
- Native Range - Colorado to Southern California and parts of New Mexico
- Growth Rate - Slow to Medium
- Mature Height - 30–50’
- Mature Spread - 15–30’
- This magnificent evergreen deserves more use in the Midwest landscape.
Needles have a beautiful silvery blue color and citrusy fragrance.
Concolor Fir is drought tolerant, urban tolerant/adaptable, has little insect or pest problems and is a narrower tree than other large evergreens making it better suited for smaller landscape sites.
Would make an excellent alternative to Blue Spruce in the landscape.
