We were watching Good Morning America after our patrol this morning when a segment about Christmas Trees came on. There were talking about how there’s a shortage of trees this year because a lot of farms closed during the recession. Since it takes 7 to 10 years for a tree to grow to a size ready to sell, that corresponds with what’s happening now.
One great tip they gave is to shop at a farm where all the trees are the same price for any size tree – THAT’s US! We’ve been doing that since we started selling trees. All of our trees are $47, same price as last year.
