Hm.  Maybe in other states, but Michigan Christmas trees look really good this year!

Oh, that's good!  HLN says ....it is a 7-10 yr growing cycle, so we shouldn't see an increase in the prices this upcoming Christmas; but maybe in next few yrs; but the farmer may be able to replant this Spring to offset the drought issues vs growth.

We're in the middle of Christmas tree plantations and plenty of forests.  If I have to go cut down a tree in the forest, I can  LOL

The tree farmer on HLN is in Mason, Michigan; says he has lost about 4,000 trees so far due to drought.
