As u can see from Photo this is Not a Spruce? So Which Christmas Tree Is It ? Many Thanks



Oh Jacque. I.m sorry to disagree. I believe It is a Spruce but not the usual one.. Spruce means a species of Picea. The only possible alternative is Abies or Fir . and the leaves seem too thin to be Abies. As far as not being Christmas Tree, you are right. too skimpy but planted in the garden and in a year or two it might look OK. I think you should ask for another opinion.

i think that you are thinking of the Blue Spruce Jacque, which is often used in Christmas wreaths, there are many other types, i think mine is a spruce, and very much green, but don't quote me on that i am not sure without looking on my garden page, in fact will go check that out now, and come back to ya.

yep, mine is a Picea abies, or Norway Spruce. but it is much shorter and fatter, so completely different shape, and mine is lighter in colour too, but the needles appear to be very simular, so would imagine yours is a Spruce, just not the same type as mine.

Yes spruce, Picea abies/Norway spruce/Xmas tree.,
These trees are all grown from seed, so not unusual to get a lot of variation.

My father lives near the little hamlet of Christmas Common
nr the village of Nettlebed.

These trees are grown in a huge plantation there and mainly Norway spruces.

Only a few miles away is the windmill where Chitty Chitty bang bang was filmed so if on over Christmas Jacque you can sit there with your chocs and think my little tree came from there ! aww

ok ok I know probably grown a lot closer but nice thought .
