Damaged Blue Spruce Tree

My kids just broke off the top two feet of my prized 13 ft Blue Spruce while taking down the Christmas lights. Is there anything that I can do to keep the trunk growing upward?

Hardiness Zone: 6a

It will probably fill out sideways more than up, and then it will grow upwards again. It should right itself over the whole of a year.

Call a nursery that sells blue spruce trees and get a professional opinion.

Your blue spruce has been established for 13 years. This pine tree should be fine without you having to do anything. Our top of a pine was ripped off by high winds and within 2 years the top grew back. The tree may look a bit odd but they're hardy and it will be fine. Cindy
