Growing to about 160 feet in protected areas, this North American native tree provides shelter and food to wildlife. It is regularly used for home construction, paddles and musical instruments. The green to bluish-green evergreen needle leaves, crowded on upper side of the branches are straight, rigid, 4-sided with lines of white dots on all sides; bad-smelling when crushed. This species is often used for Christmas trees.
