The Story

Norway Spruce Trees have 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.
