Optimists offers Christmas tree sale downtown near The Square

Nationwide shortage of Christmas trees raises prices

He said he has seen more farms getting out of the Christmas tree business in recent years.

It all began around 18,000 years ago in the Ice Age era when cold-adapted trees made their way south.

According to reports, tree farms in North Carolina and OR have been hit the hardest by the nationwide shortfall this year.

Jon is hard at work cutting down his Christmas tree at Rossview Farm last week.

"The trees that grow in the sand, like Scotch pine and white pine, people don't want those as much as they want a balsam fir or a Fraser fir", Bill said.

'Trouble in Toyland': Dangerous toys on store shelves
PIRG Education Fund has been calling on the CPSC to ban these phthalates for several years and applauds the CPSC for its new rule. The group urges parents and caregivers to take precautions when buying toys, especially during the upcoming 2017 holiday season.

And once Christmas is over, you can then plant your tree in your yard.

However, permits for locations near the Wasatch Front - including Tooele, Box Elder and Utah counties this year - typically sell out quickly, said Hannah Cowan, a public information officer working in the BLM's West Valley office.

All of his trees are brought in from OR and this year, the price is going up. The most popular trees are Douglas or noble firs.

Some businesses have closed in the area like Abel's Christmas Trees. So a tree's price isn't just a reflection of quality, but also of a premium placed on the "Christmas spirit" that comes with it.

Mullins said he hoped to be able to recruit some younger members into the club over the next year in order to help shoulder the burden.

Mugabe 'resigns' as president
He has presided over a deepening economic crisis in Zimbabwe, where people are on average 15% poorer now than they were in 1980. Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe delivers a speech during a ZANU-PF youth interface Rally in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe, on November 4.

"We couldn't get enough trees this year to cover our other two lots", he said. The final day depends on how many trees are left to be picked, but a good rule of thumb would be before December 20.

This comes after the Party Rock wildfires devastated a number of tree farms earlier this year. "When the weather gets bad, they'll drive up, roll down their window and say, 'I'll take that one'".

"It's tough, but we're doing it, and we're really excited about it", he said.

The official start of the tree season in Arnie's parking lot is the day after Thanksgiving, but they'll be there on Wednesday - if you just can't wait.
