Christmas tree grower wants to dispel the rumors

Singing 'Oh, Christmas Tree' ... then cutting it down

If you prefer to have a real Christmas tree over a fake one you'll need more green this year.

I want to pick the flawless Christmas tree this year.

He says the families who come to choose and cut their Christmas trees make his year-round labor worthwhile.

Statistics tell us that OR had the most Christmas tree producing acreage in the country in 2016 at 42,000 acres, led the country in harvested trees at 5.2 million while North Carolina came in second at 3.2 million.

He said Christmas trees are purposely planted to cut and harvest.

Smith also blames Hurricane Harvey for the spike in price to transport his trees from the Willamette Valley in OR to South Texas. Experts say customers can expect to pay slightly higher prices this year, an average of about $10 more. "I'm not happy about it". Messier bought this tree from Teal's Tree Farms in Bark River. He didn't want to elaborate on the financial hit but said it would be a significant one. "Next years trees are going to be a little bit shorter because we had to replant some and they didn't have as much time to grow", Howell said.

So what makes for a good Christmas tree when seen in the field among hundreds of others?

Good night, tree: Turn the lights off on the tree before you go to bed or you leave the house. "They're kind of the best", said Gabriel Maki, a tree and shrub manager at Swanson's Nursery in Ballard. "I plan on growth about five percent a year maybe a bit more, but when we have as many new customers this year, it's really hard".

"Trees for Troops is a joint project between FedEx and our National Christmas Tree Association". Teal has owned the Bark River farm, which opened to the public on Black Friday, for about 36 years.

Before making a selection, gardeners recommend keeping safety in mind.

Once you get your tree home, you should saw about an inch off the bottom and place it in a container of water.

Whenever they pick up their Christmas trees, Teal encouraged people to keep the trees away from heat sources.

To be honest, the whole thing is pretty practical, just think of all the extra floor space you will have for prezzies underneath. Data compiled by the Oregon Department of Agriculture found that falling demand due to the rising sales of artificial trees caused the annual number of trees cut and sold by Oregon growers to drop by 26 percent between 2010 and 2015.
