Norway spruce (Picea Abies)
Spruces are extremely hardy and are often cultivated in areas where Nordmann fir struggles to thrive.
Spruce has been used as a Christmas tree for many generations and is often described in Denmark as the “proper Christmas tree”. These days, though, it only constitutes a small part of the total number of Christmas trees sold. Seeds are harvested several places in Europe and spruce is often used for forestry, hedges, in gardens and of course with a view to actual Christmas tree production. As with Nordmann fir, the plants are normally 3 to 4 years old when they are re-planted from the nursery, but they grow faster and achieve regular Christmas tree height 1 to 2 years earlier. Spruce is extremely hardy and often cultivated in areas where Nordmann fir struggles to thrive.
