tree height

Hello I would like to plant some knew trees in our yard and was wondering what is the best height to purchase them at. The tree is going to be Colorado blue spruce and for the best hieght I mean for good survival of the tree after planting, and good vigor etc.

Thanks

Take into consideration of size of trees at maturity. They can grow to be 90 to 135 feet in height and spread 20 to 30 feet. A four-year old tree is one to two feet tall.

How long do you think it takes a tree to get to full maturity? Lets say you plant a four year old tree.

Also I have read that the smaller the tree you plant the better chance it has for survival because it adapts to the knew area better than a larger plant would. Is this true? Thanks. I really do appreciate this a lot. Will

4-year-old transplants are usually 10-16" tall and reach 6' in 5-7 years. Growth rate is considered to be slow to medium. Slow means the plant grows 12" or less per year and medium refers to 13 to 24" of growth per year.
