What to Know About Christmas Tree Prices This Year
As we count down the days to Thanksgiving, you may be getting ready to deck the halls. And if that includes a real Christmas tree, this are going to be more expensive this year.
According to the National Christmas Tree Association, 25 to 30 million real trees are sold in the U.S. every year.
At Kodey's Tree Farm in Endwell, owner and operator Frank Duffek is busy getting ready for the season.
"Supply's pretty good this year, as far as I'm concerned," he said.
Customers may struggle to find real trees as demand is up and you should be ready to pay more.
“The trees are going to be just a little more expensive this year due to inflation, due to the trucking costs, fuel costs, fertilization costs, chemical costs, supplies just for the stuff that I use around the farm itself.”
Artifical trees are also going to be more expensive and harder to find this year.
If you're thinking about making the switch, at Kodey's they guide you through the process up to securing it to your car, which you have to do yourself.
But, whether this is your first year or you've done this before, Duffek does have advice for anyone stopping by this year.
"Come and get your tree early. That's all I can tell you. They go fast."
