Blue spruce Christmas trees: Dislike

I’ve written before about live Christmas trees and the live vs. fake allergy debatebut our real problem this year wasn’t allergies. It was the species of tree we picked.

The blue spruce. I’ll never get one again.

I love live X-Mas trees. They just kinda refresh the house.

The issue with this particular type is they love the cold. And in a warm environment, they will drop their needles.


Every morning, my white tree skirt looked green. Fine, whatever. I vacuumed a lot. But when my husband took the thing outside yesterday, it was like a pine needle bomb went off.

Millions of needles fell off the tree. What a mess. Then they froze to the front steps. Fun.

Moral of the story: Avoid blue spruce.
