    Our mature blue spruce (in Ontario) is fully formed on the south side but because of the presence of 2 other large maple trees, has no growth on the north side. Due to storm damage, the other two trees have since been removed. My question is this: will the Blue Spruce eventually fill in the barren north side? Or is it too late? It's beautiful from the south side and very sad on the north. Any answers much appreciated.

    I think I'd plant something in to fill the gap, that'd be quicker. I don't think there's much likelihood of regrowth.

    Agree, it won't fill in much if at all on the blank side.
