Norway Spruce Tree Picea abies
Ultra Cold Hardy Evergreen Foliage
Growing to a large, full mature height in as little as three years, the Norway Spruce Tree is a dense variety that easily blocks out wind and neighbors..leaving you with gorgeous good looks and an instant landscape favorite.
As a privacy barrier, windscreen, or even a traditional focal point showpiece, the Norway Spruce is second to none. You'll enjoy its deep green color year-round, especially since it's tolerant to drought and heat, too.
Even better? It's one of the hardiest spruce varieties available, so it truly thrives and will grow in any Northern state. Plus, any serious disease or insect problems that kill other spruce trees do not affect the Norway Spruce, meaning you won't have to deal with harsh chemicals, sprays, or netting.
And the best part: not only is it good-looking, adaptable to a variety of conditions and soils, and very cold tolerant, but your Norway Spruce has also been planted, grown, and nurtured for success, long before it ships.
We've done the hard work at our nursery...now, you reap the rewards in your own landscape.
But don't wait - get this tough evergreen for yourself before it's gone. Order your Norway Spruce Tree today!
Planting & Care
1. Planting: Avoid planting your Norway Spruce too close to sidewalks, buildings, or street right-of-ways. It's best to plant the tree as soon as you bring it home from the nursery, but it's important to avoid planting the tree during extremely dry weather and to give it at least six weeks to develop before the first frost of the season. If you need to wait to plant the tree, keep the roots constantly moist.
When you're ready to plant, dig a large hole twice as wide as the size of the Norway Spruce root ball and just as deep. Dampen the roots in preparation for planting and set the root ball into the hole, being sure the trunk is straight. Back fill the hole with a mixture of your native soil and some gardening soil. Mulch around the base of the spruce to keep weeds and grasses from growing around the planting site.
2. Watering: The Norway Spruce tolerates acidic soils well, but does not do well on dry or deficient soils. During times of drought, additional watering may be needed. Generally, we recommend watering your Norway about once per week.
3. Fertilizing: Feed your Norway mild, slow-acting fertilizer tabs for the initial growing season and save stronger fertilizers for when the tree is established. Once the tree is established, feed it twice a month during early spring and once a month during the summer months.
4. Pruning: Prune Norway Spruce Trees in the late winter or early spring. For young trees, follow branch tips back until you find two branches growing to either side. Snip off the center branch growth. Doing this will encourage the side branches that remain to grow faster and to make the tree bushier. Cut the lowest rung of branches on the tree to force more height.
