Picea abies - Norway Spruce
Norway Spruce is one of the most important and widely distributed tree species in Europe.
With the exception of coastal areas it has no climatic limitations throughout the UK so it as been widely planted for timber production plus it has a high ecological value.
Coniferous. Evergreen with sharp, pointed needles that have a rich sweet smell.
The traditional species for Christmas tree production due to its busy habit and attractive scent. It does not have the cut tree needle retention qualities of other Christmas trees species such as Nordmann Fir, however the fast rate of growth and relatively low cost of production still makes it a popular choice – especially for larger display trees.
