About Norway Spruce

A native of Northern Europe, the stately and tough Norway Spruce is a large, fast-growing, and commonly cultivated tree throughout the U.S. and Europe. Norway Spruce's wholly dark green needles lend a dark and brooding aspect to the tree's attractive pyramidal form. Norway Spruces can grow to heights of over 200 feet, and have large (4 to 9 inch-long) cones.

This species owes its popularity not only to its visual appeal and imposing size, but also to its tremendous hardiness and adaptability. The Norway Spruce is one of the most widely planted spruces, both in and outside of its native range, and one of the most economically important coniferous species in Europe. Norway Spruce tolerates heat and humidity better than most spruces, and is extremely cold-hardy and wind resistant. It can adapt to all but the warmest southern or tropical climates, and has very few pest and disease issues.

Picea abies has an orderly form and has been widely used as a Christmas Tree, although its needle retention is not the best after being cut. In 1948, a 100-foot tall Norway Spruce became the largest Christmas Tree ever displayed in Rockefeller Center in New York City. The City of Oslo, Norway, continues to supply large Norway Spruces each year for holiday celebrations in major cities from London to Washington, D.C. But any time of year, Norway Spruce is a generous species that gives many gifts; from paper and timber, to medicine and spruce beer, from shelter from the wind to tone-wood for stringed instruments.
