Picea pungens
Colorado Spruce

After transplanting as a balled and burlapped specimen, most trees take two to three years to regrow enough roots to resume a normal growth rate in the landscape. By looking at the diameter and length of the recent season's stem growth, the plumpness of the terminal buds, and the length and color of the needles, one can surmise when an evergreen (such as Colorado Spruce) has achieved full recovery.
