I like Engelmann spruce. It reminds me of Ezo spruce, that my teacher had a love affair with Japan and so were a number of them in his collection.
I think fir has a very peaceful feeling, like a snowstorm. It is tempting to look great gnarled trunks with lots of movement for spruce as we do for a lot of conifers, such as juniper or pine, and yet the fir is probably at its best as a way much simpler foot with a trunk narrows more naturally.
