Location: Maynard, MA, near Maynard High School
These droopy looking conifers are imports from Europe but have naturalized in areas of Massachusetts. More often, they are mature plantings like this one. Norway Spruce can be considered invasive in some areas due to its thickly shaded canopy and acidic soil conditions. In fact, this tree is surrounded by two other Norway Spruces and you can freely walk beneath them, where no other vegetation grows.
