The Serbian Spruce is an ideal pick for those of you who need a tree on the slimmer side. Generally less bushy than the Norway Spruce, and with softer needles, the Serbian Spruce will also retain it’s needles better through the season. They have a dainty appearance and delicate branches, so whilst very pretty might not be ideal for big heavy decorations. They’re pretty new on the UK market, and we have a fairly limited number in the ground, but are planting more every year. Read more.
Your tree will be at least as tall as the stated height, typically a little bit taller (unfortunately trees don’t grow to perfect round heights!). We typically measure from the base of the trunk to around halfway up the ‘leader’ (the long bit at the top where your star/fairy goes), but there is some variance in this depending on the leader length. You can always cut a bit off the top of the leader.
If you’re putting your tree in any sort of stand, that will add some height to the tree, so don’t forget to factor it in to the overall measurement! If you need a stand, we sell them here.
Bear in mind that the taller your tree, the wider it will be at the base. Nordman Firs and Norway Spruces in particular get quite big and bushy as they get taller, so make sure you’ve got space!

Although the Serbian Spruce (Picea Omorika) is often used as an ornamental tree, you won’t find it on too many Christmas tree farms in the UK as it’s a fairly specialist variety. It’s a close relative of the Norway Spruce, but less bushy and with a bit more of a blue tinge to its colouring. It’s native, rather unsurprisingly, to western Serbia as well as Bosnia and Herzegovina.
A slow-growing tree, the Serbian Spruce will generally grow to around 20m tall. The needles are flat, relatively short and a bit spiky – though not as sharp as the Norway Spruce. The trees have something of a two-tone appearance, with a darker green on the top of the needles and more of a silvery-blue-green below, making for a rather attractive look.
Christmas Tree Credentials
Serbian Spruces are a great bet for small spaces, as they have a very narrow profile (the slimmest of all of our Christmas trees). This slimness continues – and is to some extent exaggerated – as the tree gets taller, so it should be noted that tall Serbian Spruces won’t form much of a triangular shape. The colouration of the needles, and the even shape of the trees makes them very pretty little trees. One thing to note, though, is that the branches are not very strong at all – so this tree is to be avoided if you have lots of decorations on the heavier side.
