So I have been looking all night for Spruce Tips. Does anyone know a website I can purchase these in the USA? I can find them for sale in Canada. I am looking for the actual tips, not extract. Thank you so much!

Call me in the Spring - I'll send you some

(not sure where you can buy them - didn't even know you could)

I'd just wait until the Spring and pick them off a spruce somewhere. It's like looking for wet hops in January.

There's got to be at least one spruce tree in Canada...

no - in fact, I don't think the new growth has started yet. Should be soon though.
