This year customers may want to head to the Christmas tree lot a little earlier as a tree shortage is hitting the entire country.
The trees at Papa Noel are 1,000 miles away from where they first sprouted. “We have farms in the Blue Ridge Mountains in North Carolina,” said Jimmy Coan, owner of Papa Noel Christmas trees.
This year, however, the pickings could be a bit scarcer.
“I’ve seen the selection is not what it used to be,” said Roxanne Varner who picks out her tree the day after Thanksgiving each year.
