Part of the Forestry Sciences book series (FOSC, volume 78)


Norway spruce [Picea abies (L.) Karst.] is second only to Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris) as the most important forest tree species in European forestry. It is comparatively easy to cultivate, and its wood products are very valuable for high-quality pulpwood and lumber. Its wood is broadly used in carpentry and as a construction material. Narrow-ringed wood without defects, termed resonant wood, is highly prized for manufacture musical instruments (see Chapter 6.2.3). Young Norway spruce trees are used as Christmas trees and its boughs are used for decorative purposes.
