Dea, you have quite a challenge ahead of you, starting from scratch selecting your trees and plants! It took me several years just to finally pick out a few shrubs to put in front of our house, but we were fortunate in that our property is basically a cedar swamp, populated with not only cedar but spruce, hemlock, tamarack, junipers, white birch, and many other species. After living here for 20 years, only this spring did I notice that the new growth on the spruce had that red tip that you show so clearly in your photo -- it doesn't last long and I guess I never looked at just the right time!
