Picea abies, or Norway Spruce, is a glorious large evergreen tree famous for its use as a screening plant or windbreak. Left alone, Norway Spruce reach heights of up to 40 feet. When sheared, they create a beautiful, deer-resistant, evergreen specimen. Norway Spruce are extremely cold-hardy and perform well in full-sun. These plants have been used widely throughout the Northeast and Long Island for years because of their moderately fast growth, durability and cold-hardiness.
