Christmas tree shortage real trees scarce this year
Pennsylvania Ag Connection - 11/30/2023

Christmas trees are in short supply this year due to multiple droughts and a heat dome that harmed the supply of trees like Douglas firs and Fraser firs.

The industry is still feeling the effects of issues with the growing process thanks to problems back in the early 2010s.

Some tree farms in the area are already closing, having sold their supply.

The Real Christmas Tree Board surveyed wholesale tree growers this year and released results in the fall. While a quarter of the growers surveyed told the board they planned to increase prices in 2023 compared to 2022, more than a quarter didn't expect to increase prices.

Tips to keep your Christmas tree healthy and prevent fires

The best way to keep your Christmas tree happy and healthy through the season is to water it every day. This should also limit the number of needles falling on your floor and reduce your vaccuuming.

Keep it away from a heat source as well - that will dry the tree out and it's not reversible.
