LARGE EVERGREENS
(None of the "large" evergreens should be planted on small lawns
on account of their great size at maturity and dense habit of growth.
A spruce or a pine may reach a height of 50 to 100 feet with a spread
of 60 feet; so also may an elm but the lower branches of the elm may
advantageously be removed while such pruning of an evergreen would
destroy its beauty.)
