Guyton tree farm opens for business ahead of Christmas

Guyton tree farm opens for business ahead of Christmas

The shortage doesn't mean you won't have a Christmas tree, but you may have to adjust the type of tree you typically purchase.

"We are lucky that we got our trees", Bradford Greenhouses' Gabrielle Polman says.

"The environmentally correct choice when it comes to Christmas trees is to pick a real one", explains Rob Keen, CEO of Forests Ontario, told The Weather Network in 2014.

Babb says they grow over a dozen different types of Christmas trees and if it will grow in Arkansas, he has it. It shows that people are making the transition back to real trees. There are indications that there will be a shortage of Christmas Trees this year. Many tree farms went out of business about a decade ago.

"People will have to be more strategic". A tree can stay wrapped in the garage or basement.

According to the National Christmas Tree Association, Americans bought more trees last year and are expected to again this year.

"The U.S. consumers are buying so numerous Canadian trees with the U.S. dollar and the production side of the Canadian market is also quite a bit reduced because of demand", Grobe says. "In Canada, if you didn't have your orders in early, you won't be getting good quality trees this year", said Atter.
