Oh Dear, a lot of misconceptions there. Conifers do not usually die if their crowns are cut off. They look ugly, yes, but they shouldn't die. Conifer wood is not good in a wood-burner, but you've probably found that out already. Before even thinking of burning it you have to dry it out for ages and ages or it deposits too much resin in the chimney. Bad News.
But yes, I do agree they are the most depressing trees as they hardly change with the seasons as deciduous trees do.
