Row of Norway Spruce Evergreens (Picea abies (L.) Karst). A European species that has become a valuable naturalized member of our forests, and extensively planted as an ornamental. It is a large tree with a dense conical crown. As the tree grows older, the side branches become horizontal, turning upward at the tip. Secondary branches hang downward from the main branches, giving the tree a graceful appearance. Its wood is used chiefly for paper pulp, boxes, crates and lumber.
