Meyer's spruce is an evergreen coniferous tree that reaches mature heights of 100 feet tall and has a trunk diameter of 18 inches. The bark is gray-brown in hue and flakes unevenly. Branchlets are yellow-brown in colour and have a pubescent or glabrous texture. Winter foliar buds are dark with recurved scales and a conical or ovoid-conical form. They are slightly resinous and have a conical or ovoid-conical shape. On top branchlet surfaces, leaves (needles) spread radially and ascendingly, whereas lower branchlet surfaces develop spreading and curled upward. Stomatal lines are present on all surfaces of individual needles, which are quadrangular-linear and somewhat curved. The apex of the needle is obtuse or subacute.
