Ivy Avenue East
The Norway spruce has a unique history that dates back to the early 1900’s when two brothers emigrated from Norway to Saint Paul bringing Norway spruce tree seedlings with them from their family farm in a matchbox. One of these non-native trees the brothers planted still remains today in the front yard of their former residence at 1084 East Ivy Avenue. At almost 100 years old, this tree carries the common Norway spruce characteristic of pendulous branches, with some brushing the ground. Norway spruce is one of the most widely planted spruces used for Christmas trees, timber, and paper production.
