You will see lower Christmas tree prices this year, according to the Real Christmas Tree Board
We have been reporting how the ongoing drought is impacting Christmas tree supplies in the south, but thankfully the Real Christmas Tree Board says that inflation is taking a rest this season for producers.
The Executive Director for the group told Brownfield Ag News they had to raise prices by 15 percent. Last year to account for 11-20 percent increases in input costs.
This year, the majority of producers say that prices increased by just 5 percent, which comes as a major relief for both consumers and the industry.
The board is expecting a limited supply of bigger trees this year, 9 feet or larger after the first week of December.
