Synonymous with Christmas time, this dense conifer has a narrow conical shape when young, which becomes broader with age.
Dark green, glossy, needle-like leaves cover the upper side of the branchlets and light brown seed cones develop during late summer and autumn months.

Growing Conditions:
Grows best in moist but well-drained, acid or neutral soil.

Value To Wildlife:
Provides a safe haven and food source for many birds, mammals and other wildlife.

Important Note:
You’ll receive a 2 year old well established whip that's between 20 to 60cm in height.

It is best to plant your trees within a week or two weeks of arrival. Remember, when your trees arrive we advise to keep them upright, well-watered and away from strong sunlight and high winds. If looking to use a tree guard when planting Norway Spruce whips, we recommend using a mesh tree guard, in order to ensure the young trees have adequate ventilation. For further information on planting cell grown trees please click here to read our blog.

By using a tree guard it provides improved survival rates by offering first-line defence against pests such as voles, mice, rabbits, hares, deer, plus other wildlife and livestock, at a young tree's most vulnerable growing stage.

It also provides protection to your newly planted cell grown trees for from seasonal weather conditions, herbicides and other chemical sprays.

They can also guard against machinery contact and abrasion, such as strimmers.

It is important to note that there are many tree guard designs to choose from and each have a specific purpose, if you’re unsure of which type of shelter you require, please get in contact and we’d be happy to chat over your project and provide advice.
