SOLVED: Help me to name what I want

Lake Toxaway, NC(Zone 7a)

I want to buy a dwarf conifer (or is it a spruce)? that I have seen alot. It is very dense, grows to about 6 feet high and is very pyramidal in shape. They are pretty common now but I don't know what its name is. I live pretty far out in the country and may have to drive some distance to buy this, so I want to "let my fingers do the walking" first and see if anyone has them before I drive 40 miles for no reason. Can anyone tell me what this is called? If you have a picture would you post it so I can see if it's the one I'm talking about?

woodspirit, sounds like it might be a dwarf Alberta Spruce. I'll try to get a pic and post for you.

Katrina, do you have problems with bagworms on your arborvitae?

This photo is of my Prairie Fire Crabapple Allee. The evergreens are Picea glauca 'Conica', Dwarf Alberta Spruce. They were about 36" in 1998 when I planted them. I dont think they have grown more than 6 or 8 inches since then. Maybe they are what you are looking for. Donna

Wow, what a beautiful picture. That looks like them, so I will ask for them at a local nursery and see if that is it. Very, very, pretty Allee

The Lowe's by me has some about one foot tall for $4, and ones about 3 feet tall for closer to $40. Being that they only grow a couple of inches per year, I sure understand the price difference! LOL

I got some! At a local nursery, about 15" high for $5 each. I will fertilize them and help them grow a little faster, lol. I appreciate all the help I am getting.......
