White spruce. No, its needles don't stink. We have them all over the place around here. I got a dozen on my suburban lot.

Not a Norway spruce. Those have a more bluish cast to the needles.

They weren't flat. But they weren't round. They were thick and triangular. So people would prob say round. I will be back there in a few days, so I'll pay more attention to their shape.

Also check and see if the cones are pointed up or hanging down.

I've moved quite a few spruce they manage ok if you get plenty of root but it's not the best for them and they struggle for sure. They grow slowly here anyway.

They grow up ugly. I have 4 in my yard and would cut them all down but they make a good wind break.
