Some Christmas Trees Will Cost More, Why?

Most people put up a Christmas tree in their home, some choose the plastic ones and some choose the real ones. This year, Christmas tree farms are raising their prices–for imported trees. Due to the lack of truck drivers, trees that are headed here from the southern Appalachian Mountains, the Northwest and the Great Lakes region will cost more this year. Tree growers in Kansas say their prices will be around what they were last year.

Bob Scott is the owner of Prairie Pines Christmas Tree Farm in Maize, says that “We’ll keep our trees in the field the same price, imported trees have to go up double, even three times the amount, because of freight and labor.”

Christmas Tree farms are still doing good, despite the change in price. Pretty much everyone likes Christmas, so if you want a real tree I’d suggest getting one soon. Earlier is better than later in this case.
