If you close your eyes and imagine a Christmas tree, you’re probably picturing a Norway Spruce. Known as the traditional Christmas tree, it has an unmistakable scent that fills the room with a festive aroma. The Norway Spruce is an excellent choice as an outdoor tree, or if you like to put your tree up indoors after 10 December, just in time for Christmas.

The Norway Spruce boasts a classic conical shape with short, bushy branches. A warm, deep forest green, this tree is the perfect canvas for even the most gaudy lights and baubles. It’s even fuller at the bottom with no gaps to the trunk.
As the name would suggest, the Norway Spruce originated in Scandinavia and was used for timber thanks to its strength. But during the Victorian era, Prince Albert popularised an old German tradition of decorating a tree for Christmas by adding lights to a Norway Spruce. Soon, the trend had spread all over Europe. Even today, Oslo sends the gift of a Norway Spruce to London’s Trafalgar Square, in gratitude for our help during the Second World War.
The Norway Spruce is an efficient, fast-growing tree that takes five to six years to reach 6ft in height. This allows us to price the Norway significantly lower than other varieties of fir.
Scent and Needles
The Norway Spruce is known for its aroma, infusing every corner of your home with that typical pine scent of a true Christmas tree. The needles are fresh, fragrant, and slightly spikier, they do tend to drop throughout the season.
The Norway Spruce is primarily an outdoor tree, creating instant impact in a city centre or town square. Indoors, it may be susceptible to heat and drop needles faster. If you’re going to purchase a Norway Spruce for your home, wait a little later so that it’s still in its prime for the big day.
