Norway Spruce

Norway Spruce
Are you looking for a tree that’s both strong and attractive?  Take a look at the Norway Spruce!

Known for their grace, the Norway Spruce is perfect for anyone who’s looking to add a little ruggedness to their home and is one of the superior choices of evergreens.  This choice of conifer has a pyramidal shape with long weeping branches that lay against its dark green foliage.  They also feature dark green needles that are roughly ½–1" in length and feel square when rolled between your fingers.  On top of that, they produce cylindrical spruce cones that hang from those drooping branches, almost like ornaments that were specially placed there.  These light brown cones grow to around 4-6 inches and sit upright on the branch until fertilized. Once fertilized, they gradually turn downward.
