Norway Spruce June

Norway Spruce (Picea abies) Many conifers have attractive flaking bark and Norway Spruce is one example. The needle-like leaves are dark green with a pointed tip. Each individual leaf is attached to the stem by a tiny peg. The cones, often seen towards the top of the tree, are pendulous. Native to Europe, it was commonly grown as a Christmas tree but has been replaced in recent years by Noble Fir Abies procera. (Source: Dr Mary Forrest, UCD).
