Mixing Spruce Trees with DecidiousTrees

13 years ago

I see new yards that have the small colorado spruce trees planted and right next to the spruce trees some norway maples and also chanticleer pear trees sprinkled throughout. These trees are all very new. It seems that this planting would grow into a jungle.?? It seems like the spruce tree would need the room to grow. Can you help me understand why folks plant like this. Perhaps I am missing something and thought you folks could enlighten me. I also have noticed some of the older landscapes around with only colorado spruce trees and they look beautiful together. They do not have the decidious trees. I am getting ready to plant my spruce trees and I had planned to plant just spruce. I know they are small but they will grow in time. Am I correct or should I plant decidious also. Thanks so much.
