Christmas Trees More Expensive this Season
Prices on Christmas trees increase.
(CNN) – This year’s Christmas celebration comes with a bit of bah-humbug for your wallet.
Christmas trees are more expensive.
Prices have gone up for the second year in a row.
Families hoping for the scent of fresh pine will especially pay more, prices for real trees are up as much as 10% this year; just like last year.
The great recession is to blame for the price increase.
Christmas tree farms often cut down trees only as they are sold.
Because the farms sold fewer trees during the recession, they had less space in which to plant new ones.
