Why You'll Be Paying More for a Christmas Tree This Year

Here's how to protect your Christmas tree this holiday season

People have already started putting up their holiday decorations but a shortage of Christmas trees across the country could impact your chances of finding the flawless one for your living room.

"So far, it's been pretty busy", Teal's Tree Farms owner Joe Teal said of business at his farm.

Howell said the canaan firs are $10 per foot and the pines are $7 per foot.

"Back in 2014, we recognised there was very much a trend for artificial trees at that time that were very stripped out and minimalist, following a Scandinavian approach, where you could see the light coming through between the branches".

They gather in a circle around the tree, holding hands, and sing "Oh, Christmas Tree". Their overall growth habit is a bit more stiff than that of a Douglas-fir, but quite attractive, and they also win praise for good needle retention.

"You've got to make sure you keep it watered", he said.

Last year they decided they to stop their festive production of the pine trees that take three and a half years to reach the ideal Christmas height.

A favorite this season are the bluer trees, and those with a hint of silver under the branches.

"It's interesting watching everyone trying to beat each other for the first pick of the trees", Bruce said.

"Ultimately, you have to cut where is necessary to make it fit the space, but there's a tidy way of doing it", says David. NCTA projects the average customer will spend about $82.20 for a real tree this year.

We caught up with volunteers from Trees for Troops in Newburgh Monday as they prepared a special shipment. "When you take the tree home and get it inside and it warms up, it will release more fragrance", Howell said.

"But it's a great thing for families, you have kids running all over the place".

Also, make sure your tree is away from heat sources, as these tend to dry out the trees and increase the risk level.

"When you come to an event like this and spend time with veterans, they tell you how much this means to them". "If not, the tree is still fresh".

There are six Christmas Tree farms in the tri-county area.
