Conifer Tree, Norway Spruce

The Conifer, Norway Spruce is the largest, hardiest and most adaptable spruce in the world. It is a native of Europe. Due to its hardiness and adaptability it has been introduced around the world and thrives in the plant hardiness zones of 2 to 7 where there is adequate rainfall of at least 25” per year. In areas of less rainfall additional water will be necessary especially when young. A Norway Spruce is readily identified by its dark green needles and drooping branchlets. The Norway Spruce can grow 2-3+ feet per year their first 25 years under good conditions. Soil, moisture, and sunshine is everything to a plant and its growth rate. It is popular during the holidays too, being used both as a Christmas tree and in various decorations.

These trees can grow to over 100 feet tall and be 40 feet wide with spreading branches at the base and will live over 100 years. Although they do best in full sunshine they can tolerate some shade, up to 50% and still survive but the growth rate and density will be reduced. The Norway Spruce has a fibrous deep spreading root system that makes this tree very windfirm and is able to withstand winds up to 100+ MPH.
