Vestavia family helps others find ideal Christmas trees with family-owned business

Christmas Tree Sellout in WNC? National Christmas Tree Shortage Hits the Four States

"People are getting their trees earlier and earlier every year", he says.

Owners at Storeyland Christmas Tree Farm in Burghill say you shouldn't have an issue finding a Christmas tree here in the Valley. "We think it will be over in a couple more years".

When a Christmas tree is cut, more than half its weight is water. Even a month may be a stretch-that figure only applies to a freshly cut tree, kept well supplied with water.

And almost ten years on, the trees that would be ready to cut down this year don't exist, leading to a rise in prices and decline in sales, according to CNN.

If you want to buy American, real tree: Using 2012 U.S. Department of Agriculture stats, CR reported that U.S. farmers harvested 17.3 million Christmas trees for $305 million in sales, while U.S. Census Bureau stats indicated 97 percent of artificial trees that same year were imported from China. The business started when Billy and his wife went to purchase a live tree over 35 years ago.

A flight between Sydney and Los Angeles would take seven hours, which includes the time required for a refuelling stop enroute. Earlier this year, Boom raised $33 million to fund the development of the XB-1 prototype.

Yeager said it is also hard to predict what the popular tree will be several years down the line. And be careful: a green tree doesn't always mean it's healthy. During this time, the roots of the tree should remain damp but not soaking, so periodic watering may be necessary. North Carolina is the nation's second-largest Christmas tree exporter, after OR, producing more than 20 percent of the country's supply. Try to avoid choosing a tree that has any brown needles, as this could be a sign that your tree is already dying.

There are pros and cons to both kinds of Christmas trees, and which is best for you is a personal decision. Depending on the size of the pot, anywhere from one to three trays of ice cubes can be placed on the surface of the soil, where they will melt and gradually water the tree. The region produces the majority of Christmas trees for the state and is the second biggest producer in the country. While the older incandescent Christmas lights put out too much heat to string on a living tree, many of today's cooler LED strands can be used to light the tree, but be sure to plug them in and check the operating temperature before stringing them up. This trend is distinctly present in Rust Belt states like Wisconsin, where fewer Christmas trees are being planted.

It's the day after Thanksgiving and the Boyd Mountain Christmas Tree farm in Waynesville is packing a Black Friday crowd.
