Now is the time to get your Christmas tree!

This past weekend, and next weekend are the most popular times to buy Christmas trees in the state.

 

Amy Start, the Executive Director of the Michigan Christmas Tree Association, says 75% of the trees will be sold by the end of next weekend, so you'll want to buy yours soon.

There is a reduction in the amount of pre cut trees that are going to be available from the wholesalers, so some tree farms off set some of their inventory with pre cut trees and because they weren't able to get as many as they've had in the past you know they may be closing early this season.” Smart said. 

 

Start says the price of a Christmas tree is based it's height and grade, which is determined by how full it looks. On average, Christmas trees cost $10 a foot.

 

She adds Michigan is ranked third in the country for Christmas tree production, with about 2-million trees harvested each season.
