You are likely aware of the reported shortage of Christmas trees for the 2019 holiday season. There are fewer Christmas trees being grown than 10 to 15 years ago, yet more people are buying them. And, they’re paying a heftier price to boot.
According to the National Christmas Tree Association, two major tree-producing states, North Carolina and Oregon, have fewer trees to offer this year than in years past. Despite the shortage, there will still likely be enough trees to go around, but it’s highly recommended that folks purchase their Christmas tree as soon as possible to obtain a high-quality tree.
