A sturdy, upright, dense, compact evergreen. Needles are dark green and medium in length. Cones are produced at an early age. Great for berms, accents or small corners.
Boldly textured, medium length needles make this sturdy, upright, multi-stemmed tree a favorite for areas in the landscape with a little more room. The slow-growing trees become taller than wide and quite bushy. Very hardy and uniquely dense, 'Big Tuna' is compact, but not dwarf. Buds turn showy during cold winter months and stand out distinctly against dark green foliage.
