Norway Spruce (Picea abies)

Norway Spruce (Picea abies)

This tree is probably the most widely planted evergreen being used. It makes a fine specimen tree with dark green foliage and strong pyramidal form. It maintains this form at maturity, as do most spruce and fir species. Norway Spruce, grows to be quite large. Height can easily top 100 feet with a 40 foot spread. This large size requires a large planting site. The tree is often squeezed into too small of a space which causes problems with buildings and other infrastructure. This species is resistant to storm damage, is quite cold hardy, and is relatively free of insect and disease problems. Norway Spruce is best used as screens, specimens, wind breaks, and possible reforestation planting. The wood makes good construction lumber, but has little value as fuel. Norway Spruce is a fine tree to plant where a large evergreen tree is needed.
