Christmas Tree Business Man Headed Back Home

If you haven't picked your Christmas Tree out yet this year time is winding down especially since some sellers are packing up early.

Mountain Boy Trees shutdown operations Thursday around 5PM in Greenville two days before planned.

That's because a big storm is moving into Avery County where the company is based and employees want to make sure they're home for Christmas.

But weather's not the only reason Mountain Boy is calling it quits this year.

Owners told WITN sales were down 30 percent last year and another 5 percent this year.

Mountain Boy Trees says they still made a profit and plan on coming back next year they've set up shop in Greenville for the past 35 years and call their operation a tradition.
