Christmas tree sales booming

Posted: Updated:

Metro area residents are putting up Christmas trees earlier than usual this year.   

Several tree sellers say business has been booming.   

Prices vary depending on what size and variety you pick.   

Anyone using a real tree should always check for freshness, by making sure it's not shedding too much before placing it in a stand.  

Watering trees regularly is always a good idea, and avoid putting the tree near a vent to prevent it from drying out.   

Tree sellers we talked to say they have not increased their prices in the last three years.   

Most trees in our region are brought in from North Carolina, where conditions are favorable for growing fir varieties.
