Weeping Norway Spruce

Weeping Norway Spruce

The Weeping Norway Spruce is a popular landscaping tree and it is often used as a type of ground cover by many gardeners. They are evergreen conifers and the spreading speed of this type of tree is very rapid. They are very versatile to the surrounding environment and can be easily trained into different shapes. They can spread in multiple directions and the horizontal spreading speed is more than the vertical speed. Many gardeners like to train their trees using walls or poles in different directions.

If you want to train your Weeping Norway Spruce in vertical directions, you should use some poles of stakes to near the tree and let it spread along with the stake. Due to its rapid growing speed, they can quickly extend vertically following the stake. You should leave adequate space on the top of the stake to make them follow easily. Once your tree reaches the top of the stake, the branches should grow downward this time to form a perfect cone. You can adjust the size of the come by modifying the length of the stake.

If you are planning to train your tree to other special shapes, you should use corresponding stakes or pipes to guide them. You should tie some branches of the trees on the stakes when necessary. Once the trunk become stronger, you can remove the ties from the top because the trunk can be hardy enough to support the tree branches. Some landscaping pins can also be used for the training to make your tree easily form your desired shapes.
