Gingerbread spruce are tall trees that grow in cold to temperate regions of Otherworld. They look exactly like ordinary spruce trees, but during winter and in especially cold weather, they release a scent like that of freshly baked gingerbread. The wood of the gingerbread spruce also exhibits this property, but the scent is less intense than that of a living tree, and after about three to five years, the wood looses it's scent entirely. Magic enchantments or chemical processes can be used preserve the temperature-triggered scent of the wood if desired. Gingerbread spruce trees, despite their delicious scent when it's cold outside, are not edible, and should not be confused with the Gingerbread Trees that grow in candy biomes.
