Norway Spruce have aggressive root systems which make them good for erosion control. This characteristic also makes them fairly drought tolerant once established.
Norway Spruce are the dominant evergreen in Europe, and although they are not native to the US, they are commonly planted throughout the Northeast and as far south as Tennessee. Norway Spruce can survive even farther south if planted at higher elevation. However, they are best suited to temperate climates, need full sun, and prefer richer somewhat acidic soils. They can reach a jaw-dropping height of 200 feet, but most max out at a “merely impressive” 80 feet.
PLANT IN RECORD TIME:
Watch how to plant evergreen seedling plugs faster and with less effort than any other type of “bare root” evergreen tree. With just a cordless drill, a garden cart or wheelbarrow, a 5 gallon bucket of water, and any old/dull/rusty 1 inch drill bit you have lying around, you can realistically plant one plug seedling per minute. Your back will thank us later 🙂
