Norway Spruce

Picea abies

The Norway Spruce is a true northwoods giant that can reach heights of 90+ feet.  This conifer has the same conical shape as the White Spruce, but exhibits its signature drooping branches as it matures.  Dark green color with short, shiny and stiff needles is found on this fast growing evergreen.  A common choice for windbreaks since its strong and flexible form can withstand winds of over 100 mph.  The Norway Spruce tolerates dry locations better than other spruces, but prefers loamy, well drained locations. This tree is very adaptable to most conditions and naturally deer resistant.

    What is best time to plant Norway Spruce seedlings and how far apart should they be planted if I eventually want an unbroken windbreak?

    The best time to plant bare root nursery stock is in the spring. This gives the trees an entire growing season to become established in their new soil home. When planting a windbreak, we suggest a minimum of 2 staggered rows, but preferably 3 rows if you have enough space. At maturity, the Norway Spruce may reach a 30-40' spread. Taking this into account, you may plant the Norway Spruce trees 15-20' apart. Plant the second row 15-20' away from the first row. Place the trees centered between the trees of the first row in your newly established second planting row. Plant the third row 15-20' from the second row. The trees will line up with the first row of trees. There you have staggered rows!

The Norway Spruce has lustrous dark green needles which are .5 to 1 inch in length and maintain their color nicely all winter long.  Its bark is reddish brown in color and somewhat scaly.  The cones produced by this conifer are relatively long at 4 to 6 inches in length.  A very popular tree used for reforestation due to its growth rate, classic look and great wildlife value.  This conifer is adaptable to most growing conditions except high heat areas and arid climates.   

Common Uses:

  • Windbreak, can withstand winds of 100+ mph
  • Ornamental
  • Reforestation
  • Good wildlife value
  • Shade tree

This is a giant tree when it matures, think of it as a multi level skyscraper for birds.  It's thick foliage give birds a great place for nesting, roosting and cover from predators and winter weather.  Many animals large and small use this tree for cover and shelter including grouse, woodcock and hares.  While the tree is used by owls and hawks for roosting, it is common to see an Eagle or Osprey perched atop these towering forest kings.
