We have a blue spruce in our back yard and wonder if it is prone to falling over in high winds like other evergreens.

I did some research and I saw that most evergreens can be susceptible because their branches collect and hold rainwater or snow making them heavy and prone to topple in high wind. Some evergreens were worse than others and blue spruce was not on the "worst" list.
