Christmas tree shopping season begins ; prices likely higher this year

NY asks residents to buy local Christmas trees

Christmas tree growing and exporting is a $100 million industry in Atlantic Canada, but it faces competition from artificial trees, which can last for many years.

Joe Shadle, owner of J&T Trees in Utah, said it takes up to 10 years to grow a Christmas tree for the market.

This season, some farmers nationwide say there may be a tree shortage and that they don't have as many trees as they usually do this time of year.

Erway says he only gets a small amount of trees from out of state since the shipments aren't always dependable with the tree supply.

Researchers did discover something that might help people keep needles on their trees long this year.

A fresh cut Christmas tree retains its needles longer than the ones that are pre-cut.

Collins and the National Christmas Tree Association credit the recession with the higher prices and lower supply. "A lot of people are going to be running out of trees this year". At Martin's, there is only one additional shipment of trees arriving before Christmas.

The primary technology developed in Dr. Lada's lab is being licensed to members of the Nova Scotia Christmas Tree Coop.

"It's been a little tough, getting the trees,"Clark said, "But we already had our order in a while back, so we got 552 on our first order and we have 480 more coming next week, so it worked out". "It's grown much more than we ever really expected it to, but it has been a fun adventure". "This is part of their year". Ian, of course, believes firmly in the natural beauty of a real tree for the holidays.

Sovine expects his lot to be flooded with customers this weekend.

Ask the tree seller to freshly cut the bottom of the tree and wrap the entire tree in twine so it will be easier to move.

The lot will likely sell about 40 trees Friday and has busier days ahead.

Monitor any tree's condition daily, keeping it watered regularly.

The price of trees available from the U.S. Forest Service is staying steady this year.

Research is being conducted at Dalhousie Agricultural campus in partnership with the Christmas Tree Council of Nova Scotia, SMART Christmas Tree Research Cooperative, Christmas tree producers; NS Departments of Agriculture and Natural Resources, NB Department of Agriculture and Aquaculture; NL Department of Forestry and Agriculture; and University of New Brunswick, under the leadership and direction of Dr. Lada.
