Tight Supply of Christmas Trees Means Higher Prices for Valley Customers
MCALLEN – Now with Thanksgiving over, Christmas trees are going up across the country and so are the prices.
According to the Northwest Christmas Tree Association, customers might be paying more than they have for a tree over the past couple of years.
The average price of a Christmas tree this year is more than twice as much as it was in 2018. The jump in price is due to a national shortage.
This issue is part of the long term effects from wildfires and insect problems in Oregon and Washington in 2017 that knocked out a huge chuck of supply.
