How to Care for your New Norway Spruce Tree

Now that you’ve come to Back to Nature and decorated your free holiday tree – you need to be sure you know how to take care of it! Below you will find the complete planting and care instructions for your tree.

Instructions for your Norway Spruce Tree

We’re delighted that you have committed to planting your Norway Spruce Tree. For now, take time to enjoy your lovely decorated tree! Place your tree in a well lit room and be sure to water it regularly. Caution: do not put your tree near a heater. It may dry out in its new environment.

Once the holidays are over, transition your tree outside. You may do this by bringing your tree outside for an hour. Then, increase the time span by an hour each consecutive day for a period of about a week.

After the last spring frost, you’re ready to plant! Plant your deer resistant tree in an area with full sun exposure. Choose a space with at least 20 feet of clearance from buildings so the tree can spread without worry. Just remember…..this tree can get 40-50 feet tall!

Dig a planting hole measuring twice the width of the nursery container and the same depth. Remove the tree from the container and gently loosen the soil around the roots. Position the tree in the center of the hole. Carefully fill the hole with soil, being sure that the top of the tree’s soil ball is just slightly higher that the soil line.

Water your Norway Spruce regularly throughout the first year.

Thank you!
