Agri View: Real Christmas Tree Troubles

Dan Agri View, Forestry

tree troublesOne of our strongest symbols of Christmas is in trouble. Everett Griner talks about real Christmas tree troubles in today’s Agri View. The problem isn’t expected to be in just one single season. Everett explains the problem all started when artificial Christmas trees were imported from China to a ready market. Just since the end of the 2016 season, as many as 40 major American tree farmers have quit farming trees. As a result, there were shortages of real trees this year. That made the prices for the real trees higher for consumers. Everett questions what the 2018 season will bring for Christmas tree producers.
