    AGROFORESTRY VALUE

    'Kabalin' Siberian spruce can be used as specimen or shade trees on larger properties or farmyards. In Siberia it is an important timber tree. The needles are sometimes used by locals to make spruce beer. Because of its hardness and flexibility, its wood is used mainly for flooring. Its dense coniferous crown provides excellent habitat for songbirds and thermal cover for mammals.
