Norway Spruce

Picea abies

Non-native

Norway spruce is a large, fast-growing coniferous tree that can grow between 30-50 meters tall. It is native to Europe hence it’s common name, however it is planted as an ornamental and windbreak in North America. Distinguished by drooping branches. Norway Spruce prefers moist but well-drained, acidic soils that may be organic, sandy, or loamy. However, it is perhaps the most adaptable conifer tree to harsh conditions, including poor, clay, rocky, dry soils of acidic, neutral, or alkaline pH.

Leaf

Dark green, 4-sided and sharp-pointed, typically grow 12–24 mm long. Arranged around the stem (in a spiral) and needles curve upwards.

Bark

Young bark reddish-brown and smooth. Mature bark dark purplish-brown with small, rounded scales.

Fruit/Seed

The largest of any spruce. Male and female cones on the same tree. Male cones are smaller and yellow. Female cones greyish or reddish-brown when mature. Hang near branch tips. 9–17 cm long.
