How do I keep my 12" tall blue spruce tree from freezing in the winter after I plant them. I live in Colorado and the ground freezes here.

Welcome!

I don't think you need to be concerned because they can handle the ground freezing in winter. You may want to make sure they're well watered before the ground freezes though.

They don't mind the ground freezing - they are native to Colorado. I always make sure to plant as early in the spring as possible and consider planting done by the first of August. That way, the plants have a good start before winter.
