Growers, customers not anxious about nationwide Christmas tree shortage

Growers, customers not anxious about nationwide Christmas tree shortageā€¯

The Christmas tree in downtown Wilmington is all lit up after hundreds gathered to see the annual tradition kicking off the holiday season.

Reports show the National Christmas Tree Association pointed to tree prices being on the rise- prices ranging due to type, size and where you buy a tree.

That shortage means finding a tree may be harder, and buying it may be more expensive.

Christmas tree shortage expected to last through 2025

One shopper said she takes extra precautions.

"You got to fertilize, you got to shear, you got to spray for pesticides, the bugs and everything, and you got to make sure the pH in your soil is right", explained Richard Largent with May Tree Farm.

Poe said for the next few years the demand could overtake the supply. It's a family tradition that they do every year, but it's their first time doing it at Pepper.

Mr Aoun said he would not accept Mr Hariri's resignation until it is delivered in person amid calls for his speedy return. Iran has been helping Iraq and Syria with military advisors in their fight against Daesh (IS) and other terrorist groups.

"The clock on perishability starts when the tree is inside the home".

"We don't know when the drought's coming back, and prices don't go down just because the drought went away, you know, temporarily", New said. We don't have to sell them on the idea of getting a tree. At $33, the tree was cheaper than in years past, Ann Rolls said.

"I've done it many years, but I've never done it here".

That's the signature tree of North Carolina, one of the nation's Christmas tree industry powerhouses, said Jennifer Greene, North Carolina Christmas Tree Association executive director. "We have a fire going in the gift shop", Collins said.

Witt, who wore a green sequinned Christmas tree headband as she loaded boxes of tree baubles in the auto at Home Depot on Friday, does not agree. "Christmas tree farmers are pretty much oldtimers".

Trunks of fresh trees will be white where they were cut.

LiAngelo Ball Is Back in the US After Shoplifting Arrest in China
Since the matter did not occur on the court, it would be up to UCLA whether the players will be punished, Scott said. School officials said the charges were withdrawn by Chinese authorities after the players admitted guilt.

Predictions for many places are that as we get closer to Christmas, the supply may dwindle even more. "Some additives actually caused the tree to shed needles or dry out more rapidly".
