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, windscreen, or even a traditional showpiece. Attracts and creates a safe haven for wildlife!

You'll enjoy its deep rich color'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 2-7.

Your tree has been grown in it’s own container, so it has a full, healthy root system.

Most nurseries grow these trees in the ground then dig them up. Delicate roots dry out before the tree is shipped to you or planted in a pot. These trees can take a full year or more to recover and have a high fatality rate.

We send you container grown trees that will explode with new growth.

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.

It was planted in december before any cold weather and seems to be doing great, I live across from a parking lot so I planted this in my front yard to block some wind and for privacy.

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

We ordered five 2-3' Norway Spruce. They arrived as scheduled and were in very well designed packaging which allowed them to ship from North Carolina to North Idaho without injury. They have been in the ground ten days now and look great. I would definitely recommend these trees and this company.

Excellent quality trees
The trees arrived fresh, and were well-branched for 18"-24" high. I'm very impressed with the quality, especially compared to trees I've purchased from other companies. This was my first purchase from "Fast-Growing-Trees," and I am completely satisfied. Their customer service was also excellent, extremely friendly and helpful.

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

They arrived in perfect condition and seem to be thriving since they were transplanted. They are gorgeous, especially next to the little White Pine I dug up and brought back from Wisconsin.

Planting & Care

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

Norway Spruce Planting Diretions

The Norway spruce (Picea abies) is a species of spruce native to Europe. It is also commonly referred to as the European Spruce. The Norway spruce is a large evergreen coniferous tree which grows approximately 115–180 ft tall. The shoots are orange-brown and glabrous (hairless). The leaves are needle-like, quadrangular in cross-section (not flattened), and dark green on all four sides with inconspicuous stomatal lines. The cones are the longest of any spruce, and have blunt triangular-pointed scale tips. They are green or reddish, maturing brown 5–7 months after pollination.

The Norway spruce hybridises extensively with the Siberian Spruce, therefore pure specimens are rare. Hybrids are commonly known as Norwegian Spruce, which should not be confused with the pure species that is the Norway spruce. In North America, the Norway spruce is widely planted, specifically in the northeastern, Pacific Coast, and Rocky Mountain states, as well as in southeastern Canada. There are naturalized populations of The Norway spruce occurring from Connecticut to Michigan, and it is probable that they occur elsewhere. The tallest measured Norway spruce is 207 ft tall, is located in Perucica Virgin Forest, Sutjeska National Park, Bosnia-Herzegovina.

Seasonal information: The Norway Spruce can grow 2-3+ feet per year their first 25 years under good conditions; in heavy or poor soils they may average 1 foot per year. Soil, moisture, and adequate sunshine are everything to a plant and its growth rate. On a perfect weather year, and no competition from grass or weeds, one might see over 6 ft of growth in one year!

Selecting a location: Don't plant the Norway spruce too close to sidewalks, buildings, or street right-of-ways. It's best to plant the tree as soon as you bring it home from the nursery, but it's important to avoid planting the tree during extremely dry weather and to give it at least six weeks to develop before the first frost of the season. If you need to wait to plant the tree, keep the roots constantly moist.

Planting instructions:
1) Dig a large hole twice as wide as the size of the Norway spruce root ball and just as deep. This will give the roots plenty of room to spread.
2)If the tree is in a plastic pot, cut the pot away carefully, but do not pull it out by the trunk. If the roots are wrapped in burlap, the burlap can be left in place. Just fold the top of the burlap down and away from the trunk and tuck it under the tree.
3) Dampen the roots in preparation for planting and set the root ball into the hole, being sure the trunk is straight.
4) Back fill the hole with a mixture of your native soil and some gardening soil. Tamp down the soil around the root system as you go to prevent air pockets from developing, which can dry out the roots. The trunk should be above ground, but all of the roots should be covered.
5) Mulch around the base of the spruce to keep weeds and grasses from growing around the planting site.

Watering: The Norway spruce tolerates acidic soils well, but does not do well on dry or deficient soils. During times of drought, additional watering may be needed.

Fertilization: Feed Norway spruce mild, slow-acting fertilizer tabs for the initial growing season and save stronger fertilizers for when the tree is established. Once the tree is established, feed it twice a month during early spring and once a month during the summer months. Do not feed the tree just before it goes into dormancy for the winter.

Weed Control: Control weeds under the Norway spruce until the tree is well-established, so that the weeds do not compete with the young tree for water and nutrients. Once you have removed the weeds, add a heavy layer of mulch to help keep them under control and to retain moisture.

Pests and Disease: In areas of deer population, protect your spruce by using a cage during the first few months of plantation. Please note, the Norway spruce cone scales are used as food by the caterpillars of the tortrix moth Cydia illutana, while C. duplicana feeds on the bark around injuries or canker; so be sure to check your spruce regularly for signs of pests.

Pruning: Prune Norway spruce in the late winter or early spring. For young trees, follow branch tips back until you find two branches growing to either side. Snip off the center branch growth. Doing this will encourage the side branches that remain to grow faster and to make the tree bushier. Cut the lowest rung of branches on the tree to force more height. For a six- to seven-year-old Norway spruce, remove three rungs of lower branches to reveal a foot of the trunk. This age for Norway spruce is excellent for a small Christmas tree, indoors or out. Prune whole, lower branches of mature Norway spruce if they are obstructing pedestrian or car traffic. Prune higher than that only if you see dead or dying branches, or if the tree is touching your roof or siding. Do not prune parts of branches, because this will cause browning and needle die-off in the remaining part of the branch.

Stephen B on Aug 2, 2017
I have several Norway Spruce trees growing on my property and they seem to thrive in our Northern Idaho winters which is not true of some other trees I have planted here. They seem to grow fast and they add a nice touch to the property. This area is definitely a evergreen/conifer loving zone. My zone is listed as 4-5, but I believe it is a 4.

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.
