Norway Spruce

Norway Spruce

The Norway Spruce tree, Picea Abies, is a fast growing tree that can grow to 150 ft. Norway Spruce trees, placed on a good site, should reach 5 ft. in 6 to 7 years starting with a 2-yr. seedling. The dense, dark green needles never get longer than 1". This evergreen conifer tree thrives well in average soil conditions, but prefers moisture in the soil to maintain its deep green color. It is highly valued as an ornamental and timber tree. It is one of the best conifers for shelters and windbreaks, as its branches grow densely into one another. For planting a windbreak, or for noise abatement, these trees should be planted 6 ft. apart. The branches of Norway Spruce trees droop gracefully as tree matures, making this a very attractive ornamental.
