If your home sits on a large property and feels too exposed to the road, Norway Spruce will give you some welcome privacy.  A row of these large, fast-growing evergreen trees will quickly create a living green wall that quiets traffic noise and blocks glare from headlights.  Easy to grow, cold-hardy, drought-tolerant, and never needing pruning, this popular conifer is a smart,no-fuss solution.  The only maintenance you may choose to perform on your Norway Spruce tree is to add some lights at Christmas and gather some branches and cones for wreath-making.  Songbirds, squirrels, and other small animals also appreciate the food and shelter this stately conifer provides.

The Story

This tree has been grown in the U.S. for so long that you might have thought it was native, but in fact, it has been bringing greenery into bleak Scandinavian winters for much longer than it has here.  Its wood is used for lumber, and the tree itself is used in shelterbelts and is also used—more famously—as a Christmas tree.  The tree decorated in Rockefeller Plaza each year is almost always a Norway Spruce.  After the holidays, it is sawn into lumber to use in building a Habitat for Humanity house.

The Details

A very graceful evergreen indeed! Branches are somewhat horizontal with pendulous "branchlets" creating a weeping effect. Norway Spruce have dark green needles and produce 3-6" brown cones. Trees at first have an upright pyramidal shape but later take on a more conical habit. An excellent choice for a specimen, windbreak or screen.

How to Grow

Norway Spruce is a common sight in the Eastern U.S., and with good reason.  It is a fast growing tree (putting on as much as two to three feet of new growth per year) that transplants easily, sails through drought, and has no mortal enemies of an insect nature or otherwise.  It casts a dense shade and takes up quite a bit of room, so think long-term when choosing a planting site.  This is the go-to plant for homeowners with spacious front yards wanting quick privacy.
