I have seen these trees all around the southeast. They seem to be a spruce or fir species. They are very tall (80-100 foot range)and i have never seen any offspring nearby, so i think they are not native to the southeast U.S. You can usually find them as planted ornamental or display trees at front yards or sometimes at small town city limits, etc in Georgia, Alabama & Tennessee. The needles are fairly long and have 2 silver white stripes underneath along the length as the pictures show. The cones are medium sized. The local nursery doesn’t have a clue what species it is or how i can order seedlings, etc.
Thanks for the help identifying and finding someone selling them.
