Free Images of Trees - Norway Spruce

Spruce trees are part of the Picea genus in the Pinaceae family.  There are about 35 different species.  Easily distinguishable, spruce trees grow in a triangular, cone shape and can reach heights up to 200 feet.  They are well-loved for their added beauty to the landscape with their bushy evergreen boughs.  

Do not confuse the Spruce with a Fir tree.  While most Fir tree branches look like their needles are growing out from the sides and have a flattened appearance, Spruce tree needles grow all around the branch and branchlets.  Under a microscope, the cross-section of a spruce needles appear square, while fir needles look flat.  The only exception to this the Norway Spruce.

 

Picea abies

Picea abies is commonly known as the "Norway Spruce" but is also known as P. excelsa, the Common Spruce.  This species has two forms - the "brush" form which has bunched shoots that are typical of spruce trees, and the "comb" form that has upcurved, sparse branches from which small side branches that resemble combs hang in lines.

This Is an introduced species from Europe .  Trees can grow up to 40 m tall in Canada and 65 m in Europe.  The tops of the trees are cone-shaped.  Exterior branches have a “droopy” appearance.   Neeldes are 4-sided, sharp, arranged spirally and curved upward and forward.  Cones can be 10-18 cm long hanging near the tips of branches.

Did you know...

that the Norway Spruce is an important timber tree in central and northern Europe?  It is the traditional Christmas tree in Britain.

The Wonder 
of Trees


 

 

 

"Even if I knew 
that tomorrow 
the world 
would go to pieces, 
I would still plant 
my apple tree."

~ Martin Luther ~

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

"I think that I 
shall never see
A poem as lovely
as a tree.

A tree whose hungry 
mouth is pressed,
Against the earth's 
sweet flowing breast;

A tree that looks 
at God all day
And lifts her leafy 
arms to pray;

A tree that may 
in Summer wear
A nest of robins
 in her hair;

Upon whose bosom 
snow has lain;
Who intimately 
lives with rain.

Poems are made 
by fools like me,
but only God 
can make a tree."

~ Joyce Kilmer ~
"Trees" 1914

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

"The best time
to plant a tree
was 20 years ago.
The next best
time is now."

~ Chinese Proverb ~
