This paper reviews the main characteristics of all spruce habitats on the territory of Serbia. The largest number of reserves is located on mountain Tara, whereas a single isolated site is in the gorge of Mileševka river. This paper also analyzes the number of spruce trees on the basis of the number of trees determined by regular taxational measurements in the reserves of the National Park Tara and in strict nature reserve 'Ravnište' in the gorge of Mileševka river. The smallest number of spruce trees was recorded in the reserve 'Crveni potok' (6 trees) and in 'Pod Gorušicom' (1 tree). Based on the determined number of spruce trees and its distribution, as one of the important indicators of the degree of its endangerment in the observed habitat, adequate protective measures were established. One of them was the planting of spruce aged 5-10 years in the reserve 'Crveni potok' on peat bog, in Mitrovac, where there was no natural regeneration of spruce.
