    The large cones of the Norway spruce, like other cones, have their scales arranged in beautiful geometric spirals. Fibonacci (fib-o-NAH-chee), a mathematician who lived in Pisa, Italy, from to , apparently was fascinated by these and other spirals of nature.   Cone scales are consumed by caterpillars, and barks are fed by moths: Cultivars: 1.

    A spruce is a tree of the genus Picea / p aɪ ˈ s iː ə /, a genus of about 35 species of coniferous evergreen trees in the family Pinaceae, found in the northern temperate and boreal regions of the Earth. Picea is the sole genus in the subfamily s are large trees, from about 20–60 m (about 60– ft) tall when mature, and have whorled branches and conical form. The cones were examined for externally visible damage caused by D. abietella and S. anthracina after which the seeds were extracted, counted and X ‐rayed to assess seed quality and the number of seeds infested by insects. Finally, the cones were dissected to identify and count C. strobilella larvae.

    Count all sound filled seed on one face of the cut cone. Filled seed have white centers (endosperm). Aborted seed are darkened or shriveled. Look for insect activity inside the cone and seed (Figure 1). If more than half of the cones sampled have insect damage, subtract one sound cut seed from the count on each damaged cone. Insect damaged. Norway spruce cones are conspicuously large (4 to 7 inches [ cm] long) Norway spruce seeds buried in humus at inch (3 cm), inch (5 cm), and inch (10 cm) depths were undamaged by the heat of a prescribed fire that measured degrees Fahrenheit ( deg C) at the soil surface. In a laboratory study in which heated air.

Seed Collection. Insect pests and rodents often target Norway spruce cones, leading to a high instance of rotten or inviable seeds. To avoid this, gather the cones in early to mid-autumn -- before.

Norway spruce cone crops in individual trees from two seed ripening years and were studied. Data were collected from five stands in southern Finland, managed by single-tree selection harvests since the s. The upper third of living crown of each individual tree was photographed for digital cone counting with image by: 4.

Spruce Tree Reproduction & Seeds. With their gray-green foliage and purple to brown cones, spruce trees are elegant additions to a garden. These conifers have thick needles that are easy to roll. Norway spruce is widespread, fragmented,frequently planted (over centuries), and widely studied.

Cone color comes in two flavors as you indicate, but in natural forests both are usually present. There may be a climatic influence. The spruce is an evergreen tree, or shrub, depending on the variety being grown. Spruce trees are generally fast-growing and are easy to germinate from seed.

There are many types of spruce, with a wide variety of growing habits. Some varieties, such as the Norway spruce, can grow to reach feet in height. Dwarf. Fill a growing tray with soil-less growing mix and place the Norway spruce seeds on top of the soil. Press gently, no more than 1/4 inch into the soil, and dust a little soil lightly on top of the seeds.

Water to keep the soil damp. Place the growing tray in a well-lit area but not in direct sunlight. Watch for the seeds to sprout. To grow Norway Spruce from seeds, shake the cones and collect the seeds, store them in an airtight container in your refrigerator until early spring, then soak them in water for 24 hours for the best germination.

Sow seeds into pots filled with a soilless seed starting mix and cover the seed. Over the course of the last week, the squirrel dropped about cones into our yard and driveway, by my estimate.

The cones were coming off a Norway spruce (Picea abies) tree in our to Europe, Norway spruce is one of the main trees in the forests of Germany, Switzerland, Austria, and Russia.

Picea abies, the Norway spruce or European spruce, is a species of spruce native to Northern, Central and Eastern Europe.

It has branchlets that typically hang downwards, and the largest cones of any spruce, 9–17 cm (3 1 ⁄ 2 – 6 3 ⁄ 4 in) long. It is very closely related to the Siberian spruce (Picea obovata), which replaces it east of the Ural Mountains, and with which it hybridises.

Katri Himanen, a Pekka Helenius, a Tiina Ylioja, b Markku Nygren a a Natural Resources Institute Finland, Suonenjoki Unit, JuntintieFI Suonenjoki, Finland. b Natural Resources Institute Finland, Vantaa Unit. Norway spruce (Picea abies (L.) Karst.) seed is collected from both forest stands after final felling and from seed orchards.

To produce high-germinability seed lots that are easy to use in nursery sowing machines, empty, insect-damaged, and other poor-quality seeds are culled.

Sorting is. First, pine seed maturity and the number of cones in the trees were investigated at five pairs of study sites during the period – Secondly, the rate of seedling establishment and seedling survival of Scots pine and Norway spruce were monitored and compared among three different timberline zones (forest zone, timberline, tree line) in.

Fluctuations in insect damage in relation to cone crop size were studied in southern Finland over a period of eleven years (). Most Laspeyresia strobilella and Hylemyia anthracina emerged after one or two years. A small number remained in diapause for three or four years. Plemeliella abietina and Megastigmus strobilobius mainly emerged after three or four years.

Comments: The wood of Norway Spruce is used to make furniture, musical instruments (pianos & violins), pulp, and in general construction. It is light-colored, light-weight, rather soft, and reasonably strong. Norway Spruce has the longest seed cones of any spruce (Picea sp.) in Illinois; they exceed 4" in length, while the seed cones of other spruces within the state (which are largely.

White spruce trees, in particular, are producing large amounts of cones this year, although Serbian spruce and Norway spruce trees also appear to have higher than normal amounts of cones.

In addition to the influence of tree stress on coning, many conifers also exhibit a pattern of biennial bearing that may also contribute to this year’s cone.

The life cycle of Strobilomyia anthracina (Czerny) which exploits Norway spruce seed cones was investigated in and in the Alps at c. m at Torgnon (Valle d'Aosta, Italy) and Lac de Tseuzier (Valais, Switzerland) by sampling cones at fortnightly ition occurred primarily singly in the basal third of cones at the beginning of June when cone scales were open for.

In Switzerland, D. abietella infestations damage up to 33% of cones of Swiss stone pine, Pinus cembra L. (Dormont and Roques ), and 8% of cones of Norway spruce, Picea abies (L.) Karst., with. A cone (in formal botanical usage: strobilus, plural strobili) is an organ on plants in the division Pinophyta that contains the reproductive structures.

The familiar woody cone is the female cone, which produces male cones, which produce pollen, are usually herbaceous and much less conspicuous even at full maturity. The name "cone" derives from the fact that the shape in some.

Norway spruce (Picea abies) is a tough conifer that makes for an easy-care landscape tree in US Department of Agriculture plant hardiness zones 3 through is also planted extensively for forest restoration and windbreaks.

Planting a Norway spruce is easy because it competes well with grass and weeds and requires no site preparation. Q&A With Sandy Feather: Q. Our Norway spruce trees produced a bumper crop of cones this year.
