Quote from: Karel on April 14, 2020, 08:44:00 PMthat sucks bud, but how about some tree facts??Judging by its cone shape and blue-green foliage, I'd wager it's a Norway Spruce (Picea abies), native to Eurasia and commonly cultivated in the northeastern US landscape.I've actually been sitting here for awhile trying to determine if it was a Blue Spruce (Picea pungens) or a Norway Spruce. The former because Blue Spruce are also common in the northeastern landscape, although they truly belong to the mountainous Colorado-Utah-Wyoming region, where they love to cling to rocky slopes and like the more arid side of things. With regard to that, I've seen so many Blue Spruces fail in the northeast. They hate the wet seasons and often get too stressed to live a full life. They'll get huge, and then heave up from the ground after long storms.However, the cone shape is more likely attributable to the Norway, a little longer and a little more slender. Blue Spruces can eventually become green like that if under stress, but the needles aren't as thickly distributed.Now, Norway Spruce don't pretend to like the water too much, either. They can do fine if the water is properly dispersed, but in grassy landscapes like this, it's not the case. They like to be surrounded by their homies. Although, the way it broke at the base like that can leave much to be investigated, and I can't tell much from what I see. It could be a mix of root rot from heavy water over a long period of time, sustained storms, and leverage from the winds.
