We're not fans of Blue Spruce/Spruce Christmas trees, because the needles are extremely sharp. The trees can be painful to cut down/decorate/remove because of this.

I do love White pine Christmas trees, but they can be difficult to decorate too, because the needles are extremely long. They are beautiful thick trees though, and the needles are flexible and soft despite being long.

Our favorite are fir trees, such as Douglas firs. They have short, soft needles, a good Christmas tree shape, and are easy to grow.
