It Might be a Little Harder to Get a Real Christmas Tree This Year

East TN farmers are running out of Christmas trees quickly.

Some East TN farmers said this year wasn’t the best for harvesting Christmas tree crops and they have to prepare years in advance when planting their trees. The farmers said the drought-like conditions have affected the number of trees they were able to grow and sell this year. One farmer said they have about 75 trees left out of 250 that were for sale this season.
