Great Cold Tolerant Evergreen

The Norway Spruce can grow to Christmas Tree height in as little as three years. It will continue to grow rapidly to a mature height of 50 feet.

A dense tree that easily blocks out wind and neighbors, it is ideal for use as a privacy barrier, wind screen, or even a traditional showpiece. Attracts and creates a safe haven for wildlife!

You'll enjoy its deep rich color year-round...it's even drought tolerant!

Believed to be the most cold hardy spruce available, it will grow in any northern state.

Also, the Norway Spruce is the most disease resistant spruce you can find. Any serious disease or insect problems that kill other spruce trees do not affect the Norway Spruce.

Plant every 8-10 feet for a solid green privacy screen. Plant on the northern edge of your property for a substantial wind barrier and help lower your winter heating bills.

Adaptable to a variety of conditions and soils. Very cold tolerant and prefers Growing Zones 2-5.

I didn't buy from here, but I bought three of these as Christmas tree size about 7 years ago. I live in Alabama,and yes, they're doing great. In the sun, where it's drier soil, it has doubled in size with minor pruning and very dense. In the shade, it has flourished, although not as dense and gone from 6 to 30 foot tall in a very short time. One has even made to over 30', but it fuller now that surrounding trees have been removed! Um in the northeast corner at higher elevation- 2000' nearly.

I ordered 6 trees and had one die the first week it was planted. The other 5 are doing very well. I was just disappointed in the tree we lost. We did not purchase the guarantee.

Received them only a week ago
I put them in the ground a day before we received a nice dose of rain and more rain to come over the next week, April 2016.
We use them you keep our nosy neighbors out.
All 15 of them arrived in great shape. I put them in a bucket of water for a couple hours and planted them in the ground as instructions explained.
We have a variation of soil, depending where you are on our 40 acre lot.
We live in central Wyoming and I will do my best to make sure they will take hold.
I can't wait for them to grow and plan on buying more, either this fall or next spring 2016/2017

They survived a very dry summer season
These small trees clearly exhibited new growth. The weather here was unusually warm and dry. I kept watering them about every other day unless some rain did fall. I am happy with them so far

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Norway Spruce

Norway Spruce Planting Diretions Plant your Norway Spruce Tree in an area that receives full to partial sunlight. Norway Spruces can tolerate shade but prefer full sunlight. Plant your Norway Spruces 8 to 10 feet apart for privacy screens, their foliage will quickly fill in.

Your Norway Spruce will adapt to your natural soil as long as it's well draining, but prefers sandy soil. Mix sandy or fine potting mix with your natural soil to make it sandier before planting. Your Norway Spruce won't need any extra water unless you're experiencing a drought. Rain fall usually gives Norway Spruces enough moisture.

Fertilize your Norway Spruce with a slow release fertilizer that's high in nitrogen twice every Spring and once a month during the Summer. Each Spring cones are produced that get between 4 to 7 inches long. They take about a year to mature and ripen around September.

This is a gift for a gentleman in our office who is retiring. We are going to make a money tree out of it. We figured a real tree would be nice, so he can plant it and think of us while he is enjoying his retirement.

When is best time to plant this tree...Norway Spruce?
Sandy P on Apr 7, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Planting in fall/winter/early spring, while they are in their in semi-dormant stage helps them get their roots, established without having to give nutrients to the rest of the tree. Also, with extra care you can plant in the summer, by planting in the evening after the sun goes down, so it will not get leaf burn. Giving it extra water and putting a 3-4 inch of mulch (keeping a few inches away from the trunk) to help retain moisture during hot dry weather.

Missy M on Nov 27, 2016

What is the best time of year to plant this tree?
Lee L on Aug 30, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I read that any time of year is fine and once they're well established they need very little care to grow. That being said I planted my sapling in mid November in Minnesota when it was freezing and it's still growing fine. However, the growth rate has been somewhat slow compared to the possible 2-3 feet they CAN grow each year under perfect conditions.
