Christmas Trees prove harder to find this year

Local News

The Noble Fir may be hard to find.

The Pacific Northwest Christmas Tree Association said there is a tree shortage across the country.

The organization blames the great recession in 2008. They said there was an oversupply about 10 years ago and growers planted fewer trees to save money.

The association warned shoppers can now expect fewer trees to pick from and higher prices for the trees they do find. 

It is estimated that you could pay up to ten percent more for a tree this year.
