Question: When and how to prune a dwarf Alberta spruce tree?
Answer: Dwarf Alberta spruce trees may eventually reach 12' in height, but only over a long period of time (growing just 2"-4" per year). They have a classic "Christmas tree" shape. The green needles have a tight, densely-packed growth habit that gives dwarf Alberta spruce trees a "fuzzy" look. They normally do not need pruning but you can shear them in the spring, just as new growth begins and they will remain full and dense.
