Yes, some Picea species are popular Christmas trees. The most common spruce Christmas tree is the Norway spruce (Picea abies), which is known for its symmetrical shape, soft needles, and strong fragrance.

Other popular spruce Christmas trees include the white spruce (Picea glauca), which is known for its blue-green needles, and the blue spruce (Picea pungens), which is known for its silvery-blue needles.

Spruce trees are a popular choice for Christmas trees because they are relatively easy to care for and can last for several weeks indoors. They are also a good choice for people who are allergic to other types of Christmas trees, such as pine or fir.
