Etherchannel vs Spanning-tree

Dear Team,

Have a clarification regarding a LAN design. I have Cisco 3750 in stack configuration acting as core switch. The access layer switches are 2960X in stack mode. I plan to have link level redundancy as well with the ports from each of the 2960X switches connected to each of the 3750 switch respectively.

Further, I plan to have port aggregation using etherchannel configured, so that in effect I can have a uplink bandwidth of 2 Gb. Can a similar setup be done with spanning tree as well. If yes, how can it be implemented. Do share any design document using spanning tree if any.  What are the advantages of Etherchannel vs spanning-tree and which is the recommended practice. Your feedback will be highly appreciated.
