Last weekend I plant a couple spiral Spruce evergreens. Should I be watering these trees daily despite how cold it is outside?

Daily watering is excessive, even for new plants this time of year. I'd water them deeply once each week - less if you get about an inch of rain per week. Landscape trees and shrubs should be happy with about an inch of water per week. Hope this clears up any confusion!
