Nationwide Christmas tree shortage impacts Kansas City

Nationwide Christmas tree shortage impacts Kansas City

North Carolina Christmas Tree Association Executive Director Jennifer Greene says there's a more limited supply of Fraser fir trees this season.

Christmas trees are going up in homes across the country, but before deciding on the real thing over a fake, it's best to make sure pest control is in order.

TCU kicked off the holiday season Tuesday with some new items under the Christmas tree.

Schwerman says the trees they're able to grow in Lacey's Spring are not Fraser firs, and can easily beat the crop they had previous year. But for many shoppers it's coming with a bit of sticker shock.

Commissioner of Agriculture & Commerce Cindy Hyde-Smith said, "Christmas tree farms are significant to the state's thriving agritourism industry". "All the growers are saying, man, we're shorter than usual".

A Bluffton tree lot with Christmas Mountain Farms says they tackle bugs in the beginning. He said between 10 million trees are sold between the two states.

Alabama slips to No. 5 spot in fifth ranking of 2017
Meanwhile, Alabama is ranked No. 5 and could stand to move up should another team in the top four fall this weekend. Wisconsin (12-0, 9-0) is coming off a 31-0 win over Minnesota, and is the only remaining Power Five unbeaten team.

During the financial crisis nine years ago cash strapped Americans bought fewer trees.

"They're telling us they're afraid they can't get a tree because of the shortage", Dauth says.

National Christmas Tree Association spokesman Doug Hundley says you should expect prices for these trees to increase. "TCU has changed so much over the years, but I think this is a tradition that has really continued to hold firm".

Growers are now planting more trees but it will take time for them to reach full height, which means next year prices could be higher again.

"That is one thing that is watched very closely by the farmers", said Salesman Douglas Brown, "When they find something like that, they are treated... a lot of preventive treatment is done to them to keep them from even getting in".
