How To Plant Your Norway Spruce

Caring for Norway Spruce

Spring and fall are great times for planting your Norway Spruce. Winter and summer are fine as long as you avoid extreme temps.

The Norway Spruce thrives in full sun and adapts to any soil that is well drained. A neutral to acidic soil is best. After planting, adding a layer of 1 to 2 inches of mulch will help keep the soil moist. Do not allow the mulch to touch the trunk as this increases the chances of pests and disease. Water your new tree deeply a couple times per week for the first couple months. After your tree is established, it will only need watered when the soil is dry. This Spruce tree is drought tolerant once established. Fertilize when planting and in early spring yearly with a slow release fertilizer. The Norway Spruce is wind, cold, and deer resistant.

When properly cared for, the Norway Spruce rarely has issues with pests and disease. If you notice brown dry spots on your Spruce Spider Mites may be the culprit. Treat with insecticidal soap for minor infections and Bifenthrin or Carbaryl for more severe infestations. Do not use horticultural oil on Spruces.
