Norway Spruce transplants are a fast growing, dark-green spruce with short needles. The pleasant appearance of this evergreen species makes it ideal as an ornamental, and the growth rate of Norway Spruce transplants is well-suited to applications such as windbreaks and privacy screens, although its foliage is not as dense as some other species. For true privacy and wind protection, two rows of Norway Spruce are better than one.
Norway Spruce transplants 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 transplants have an aggressive root system which makes them good at outcompeting other plants, and are fairly disease resistant. They can survive even farther south if planted at higher elevation, but are best suited to temperate climates with full sun and richer soils.
Norway Spruce transplants are among the fastest growing evergreens, and can reach a jaw-dropping height of 200 feet…although most max out at a “merely impressive” 100 feet.
