What to Do With a Spruce Tree Top?

Anonymous added on November 22, 2017 | Answered

My parents planted a Norway Spruce in 1964 for Christmas. It is now huge and lovely, except for the fact that it is devouring the front yard and its roots are cracking the foundation to the house. I am going t have it taken down. I want to save the top for a live Christmas tree, but I was wondering if it would be possible to get it root. What is your advice for either making the top last as a live tree or replanting the top so it will grow again? Thanks.
