Meister's Tree Farm opens for season

Meister's Tree Farm opens for season

It's a busy weekend to pick out your Christmas tree but you may be paying more for your favorite fir this year.

However, you might want to resist the urge to hurry up and purchase a live Christmas tree on Black Friday or Cyber Monday.

Between six and eight million real Christmas trees are sold in the United Kingdom every year, and now Dobbies is encouraging everyone to get involved with a "social Christmas tree lights switch on", also taking place on Saturday 8th December at 6pm.

The tight market is rooted in an oversupply followed by the Great Recession that caused many growers to leave the business. "If that tree isn't sold on December 26, it's not very valuable".

Their supply issues were because of rain in North Carolina, then the temperature dropping too low to wrap the trees without breaking branches, according to Dobromil.

While Clark noticed the decreased supply, she said customers Friday had not mentioned it.

Wichowski and the small group gathered around said the lot looked like it had "plenty of trees" with a "nice selection".

And with a farm of around 24,000 trees, there is no shortage of options at Kaleidoscope Farms.

"The tougher thing is getting volunteers", Clark said. They include Scotch Pine, White Pine, Fraser Fir and Canadian Balsam. In addition to offering "cut your own" Christmas trees, the farm also sells treats and snacks to anyone who works up an appetite searching for the ideal tree. "I don't think we are going to run out of them very soon", he said. The girls cheered as the tree finally toppled down.
