This is another spruce from the mountains where it got eaten by cows and sheep for all the time. That is why it got so dens and stayed this small. But the only problem is that the foilage is only outside. Inside the tree is dead - no green. That is why it is necessary to cut some branches and let the light inside to promote backbudding.
Before thinning out.
After. The tree looks promissing.
