Norway Spruce bare root seedlings, approx 9-15″ tall

Norway Spruce are a fast growing, dark-green spruce with short needles. The pleasant appearance of this spruce makes it ideal as an ornamental. This species is well-suited to applications such as evergreen windbreaks and privacy screens.

However, the foliage of this species is not dense compared to many slower growing species. So it is often best to plant two rows of Picea abies in a foot-step pattern to speed up the closure rate of a natural privacy screen. Another privacy screen trick is to mix Picea abies with a slower growing species such as Black Hills Spruce or Meyers Spruce. Norways provide good height fairly quickly, while the slower species provide dense foliage.

Norway are the dominant Spruce throughout Europe. Although they are not native to the US, they are commonly planted throughout the Northeast and as far south as Tennessee. Norway Spruce seedlings can survive even farther south if planted at higher elevation, but are best suited to temperate climates, need full sun, and prefer richer soils. They can reach a jaw-dropping height of 200 feet, but most max out at a “merely impressive” 80 feet.
