Replacement of Blue Spruce

Asked July 12, 2018, 12:00 PM EDT

I have a double row of Colorado blue spruce along the north side of my property. They are around 30 years old. There are several dead and other that will die eventually. They were very useful for privacy and a winter wind break. I am wondering what are some good replacement options that are relatively fast growing and are resistant to the issues surrounding the Colorado blue spruce. I would like to plant something this fall. Thanks
