What is a Norway Spruce? A Norway spruce, or Picea abies, is a tall and slender tree that is native to Europe. These trees are typically found in the wild in mountainous areas, where they thrive in cool climates.

Norway spruces are distinctive for their drooping branches and long needles, which give them a graceful appearance. The bark of these trees is also unique, as it is covered in small scales that give it a rough texture. These trees can grow up to 100 feet tall, and have a distinctive pyramidal shape. They have beautiful dark green needles that turn a reddish-brown in the fall. They also produce cones that are about 2 inches long.

If you're looking to see a Norway spruce in the wild, your best bet is to head to the mountains. These trees can be found in forests and parks throughout Europe. They are at their peak during the winter months, so be sure to visit them then!
