Blue Spruce – a distinctive blue-green color with short, pointy needles.
White Spruce – greener than a Blue Spruce and has short pointy needles.
Norway Spruce – bright green needles and softer compared to other Spruces.
Concolor Firs – known for their scent, this tree has long soft needles with a lighter color underneath.
Fraser Firs – typically not found on Long Island because of the weather. However, they are a dark green-blue color and the needles point upward.
