Pine Trees to Plant in Ironwood, MI

Asked February 26, 2019, 5:22 PM EST

We are purchasing a cabin one mile south of Lake Superior and butted up to a National Forest north of Ironwood, Michigan.

I have a choice of purchasing trees from my WI County Land Conservation Department but I want to pick the best of them for screening the neighbors out and will hold up to all the weight of the snow. My choices are: Cooks Balsam Fir, Norway (Red Pine), White Pine, White Spruce, Norway Spruce, or Colorado Blue Spruce. Which do you recommend? Thanks! Carol

Can you tell me more about the site. Type of soil, amount of sunlight, drainage, topography, etc?
