The organization that provides training and jobs to adults with developmental disabilities will hold its tree sale from 7 a.m.to 7 p.m. every day until all the trees are sold.

Hess said it takes about 10 years to grow the bigger trees, which are the most popular. (And it would look just as good on your kitchen counter, we promise!) Keep the Christmas theme consistent by decorating your pineapple with red, maroon, and rose gold baubles (like these Mini Glass Round Christmas Ornaments, $8, from Target). Real trees pose a fire danger because they can dry out after they are cut.

A permit allows holders to cut one tree up to 20-feet tall for personal use until December 31.

Christmas tree demand has grown 20 per cent per year since 2015 yet retiring farmers have no succession plans, leaving a significant gap in the market.
