Trees
Name Spruce - Norway
Botanical Name Picea abies

It's a native of Europe (did you guess that?). This large, dark green evergreen tree has the traditional pyramidal shape plus gracefully weeping branches which are most evident at maturity. Can be used as a specimen or as a windbreak. The foliage "hangs down" on the large trees. How do you know if you're looking at a Norway Spruce? Remove one needle, it should be about 1 inch long and rotate easily between the thumb and forefinger. If it does not rotate and has 2 flat sides it is a fir tree.
