Experts say that, due to a shortage of trees, the selection will be reduced.and the early tree shopper will get the one they want.

Michigan State University Extension helps support Christmas tree growers so they can deliver their best products locally in Michigan and to the national market.

There is a nationwide Christmas tree shortage this year, and prices for live trees continue to rise.

"We wanted to create an experience for families and individuals to come out to a farm atmosphere and celebrate the Christmas tradition with a fresh Christmas tree", she said.

"By purchasing locally-grown Christmas trees and holiday greens, CT residents can have direct influence on keeping forests as forest and farms as farms", Martin said.

"We're very fortunate. MI can grow all the varieties of trees".

"It hasn't hit us yet, but we're a lot smaller than other growers", Lutz said. About two-thirds of visitors to Pleasant Valley Tree Farms cut their own trees.

"The interesting thing about the Christmas tree industry in North America is it's actually struggling right now", said Wetteland.

Virginia has more than 500 Christmas tree farms, growing more than 10,000 acres of trees of different varieties.

Doug Hundley suggests Christmas shoppers buy their tree between November 25 and December 1 to get the best selection and avoid a last-minute price hike. At Mr. Jack's Tree Farm in Charlotte, owner Casey Bolen said he will probably run out of trees a few weeks after Thanksgiving.

"It'll be sad not to see them this year", he said. Demand for real trees has returned but getting more seedlings has still been tough and that could mean higher prices.
