Why Christmas trees could be disappearing this year

Why Christmas trees could be disappearing this year

Almost 4,000 acres of CT farmland are planted with Christmas trees - the 13th largest acreage in the U.S. Others will be dragging them out of the attic once we're on the far side of Thanksgiving. Those looking for a more authentic tree gravitate toward real trees, with their rich, earthy smell and handsome boughs of green.

"The supply is down this year and demand is obviously still gonna be high, I mean everybody wants their green, real Christmas tree", said Macklin. In East Tennessee you don't have to go to far to find that flawless tree, to cut it down and bring it home.

Collins' farm is located in Anderson County.

"We want to help people to bring a bit of Christmas cheer to the nation".

The lot will be open until December 20, unless they sell out first.

"These new trees will stay fresh longer, which will increase marketability and the potential for exporting", said Navdeep Bains, minister of innovation, science and economic development.

This year, Forestry Commission England are encouraging people to extend their Christmas decorations to the outside of the house, to help boost the Christmas spirit up and down the country.

"We went up roughly five dollars a tree this year", Martin said.

"We know our quotas from previous years so we will do whatever we can to have that still available", she said. Between now and December 1 is the best time.

Coan said he usually ships in a few thousand trees from OR and Washington to sell at his six lots around Austin. Some needle loss is to be expected, but if the tree loses lots of needles when shaken, go elsewhere.

Numerous state's approximately 500 Christmas tree growers will open for business this week, offering customers fresh Connecticut Grown trees that provide sustainable economic and environmental benefits as well as a memorable family activity. It's getting some hot chocolate by the fire.

"It became clear to me that if we did not fix the needle loss problem, the industry would lose its reputation", said Lada.

Unlike the Griswolds, if you forgot your saw don't worry about it, they've got a hand saw you can choose from, or of course, the chainsaw, so you don't have to dig the tree up.
