Repotting a dwarf spruce tree - soil recommendation

Hello - I have a dwarf spruce tree thatís still little but I need to repot it. Could anyone recommend a good soil to use? Do I need to purchase a special soil or can I get it in any home improvement store? Thank you!

Trees grow in good old fashion dirt, doesn't need to be anything special.

When growing trees indoors in pots I use a quality potting soil. My favorite is Fox Farms Ocean Forest but I've also had decent results with whatever the local home center carries.

as long as it's not too sandy or clay it should be fine. Don't use regular synthetic fertilizer, that'll cause it to grow foliage and not focus on rooting instead. an Organic (slow release) like milorganite would be fine though and if soil is clay, it'll help fix that somewhat.
Just make sure to water it daily for about 10 days then taper off to less waterings.
