CT Christmas tree farms open this week

"They said we don't have trees for you", said Pete Elliot, owner of Tree Land Christmas Trees.

According to the National Christmas Tree Association, shortages of Christmas trees started last year and will continue for the next couple of years. It takes seven to 10 years to grow a Christmas tree.

The tree supply is expected to be tighter - partly as a result of the economic recession almost 10 years ago, when tree farmers cut back on plantings.

"Probably for about the next two or three years", Harrington said,"Until that cycle kind of catches back up".

And don't whittle the outer edges of the tree in order to help it fit in a stand; those outer edges help the tree absorb the water you're feeding it.

Whether your family has a tradition of cutting your own Christmas tree or you have chose to fearless the cold to start a new tradition, choosing and cutting your own evergreen can be a fun experience.

Only a few states, such as North Carolina and OR, have larger farms that export trees to other states for retail sales.

They'd just finalized plans for the Holiday Traditions lot the month before and amid ordering and setting up noble and Fraser fir trees, they hadn't had much time to get the word out.

Some tree salesmen and tree farm owners concerned it could put them out of business.

That's why the fact that people are now turning their ladders into Christmas trees for the holidays isn't really all that surprising, really. Customers are welcome weekdays from 2 p.m.to 5 p.m. and weekends 10 a.m.to 5 p.m. "Our shortage is the trees that they can come and cut themselves". I was hesitant, but it was fun and has become a tradition. Star Tree Farm charges $4 per foot for Scotch pine and $6 for fir.

Perhaps even Charlie Brown's wispy tree will find a happy home this year.

Doug Hundley suggests Christmas shoppers buy their tree between November 25 and December 1 to get the best selection and avoid a last-minute price hike.
