Gutter/downspout protection from pine needles

I have a big 40' pine tree in my front yard that the previous owner planted. It's a very pretty tree that I would hate to get rid of.
But two short runs of gutter are impacted by the pine needles that get in there. They clog the downspouts and such.
I have looked online at some of the mesh type downspout protectors but none look to me like they will stop pine needles.
I have also considers gutter covers of some type to stop the pine needles from getting in there, just not sure what to use.
Suggestions???

Everybody has their favorite, I've gone through every brand, type, style over the past 6 homes. Gutter Stuff will be in my gutters for ever, and yes I have pine, maple, oak trees and it works with all of them!

Wait for it!!!!!!!

Is cutting down the pine trees an option?
