  • Experts say you should wait until this day to buy a Christmas tree

"Supply and demand seem to always be in some flux", Chal Landgren, a Christmas tree specialist and professor at Oregon State University, said via email.

The trees range in size from 3 to 9 ft and in price from 26-$90. That's roughly the same as the last two years.

You will find the lowest price on Christmas Eve with an average price of $47. And just think of the time you'll save not having to hoover up pesky needles. "Most all of them we grow except the ones we don't grow. Now you have a lot of these farms that are being sold for other uses". The lot offers a variety of trees including Scotch Pine, White Pine Douglass Fir and Frazier Fir.

In Hawaii, Christmas tree seller Richard Tajiri said he ended up 1,000 trees short this season.

Their most popular trees are the ones reaching 7 feet to 8 feet tall, according to Clark.

Beth Clark, COO of the Boys and Girls Club of Manatee County, said customers have not commented that they notice any shortage. The firm also sells a range of handmade fir wreaths.

Lovell's Florist and Nursery in Medford, Massachusetts, resorted to a hodgepodge of suppliers from Canada, North Carolina and the West Coast because the regular wholesaler couldn't deliver, owner LaVerne Lovell said. Prices for their trees in 2018 range from $30 to $305. "It's getting tough", said Tom McGill, who oversees the effort.

It's a busy weekend to pick out your Christmas tree but you may be paying more for your favorite fir this year.

The Boys and Girls Club is looking for more people to help run the tree sale.
