Caring for spruce trees in the landscape involves a set of practices to ensure their health, vigor, and aesthetic appeal. Choose a planting site with well-drained soil and ample sunlight. Ensure proper watering during dry periods, especially for young trees, to promote healthy root development. Mulching around the tree's base helps retain soil moisture, regulate temperature, and suppress weeds.

Pruning spruce trees is generally minimal, focusing on removing dead or diseased branches. Regularly inspect the tree for signs of pests or diseases, and address any issues promptly. Apply a slow-release fertilizer in early spring for optimal growth.
