A Spruce Tree

The spruce is one of the most familiar and most highly prized of evergreens in many of our northern forests. Its resinous exudate was formerly very popular as a commercial product known as "spruce gum." Nowadays the demand for chewing gum has so increased that it has been necessary to find other materials for its manufacture, and the once-familiar spruce gum has practically disappeared from the market.
