Black Spruce is native of Canada. It is found abundant in the great white north of Québec and Labrador. It can also be found further south, near peat bogs where the soil is more humid. It is slow-growing and can attain a height of up to 20 meters. Its fruit consists of a cone of about 10 centimeters and reaches maturity around August. The wood is used for building trusses, beams, railroad ties and other construction. It is strongly used in the pulp and paper industry.

It is also the main ingredient of spruce beer. The aroma of black spruce is very energizing. It fills the air with that coniferous smell, a fresh perfume that is both fruity and sweet.
