Christmas Trees Affected By Drought

The severe drought has no doubt affected many in Eastern Carolina this year, and tree farms are just the next on the list to feel the impact .

Moore Farms is the only Craven County tree farm where customers can cut down their own Christmas tree. At issue, many of the trees haven't come close to reaching full growth potential. They remain small and brown. And while several mountain grown Frasier firs and older trees do remain, tree farmer Donna Marshall says sales are down this year.

Frasier firs range in price from 30 to 60 dollars. Homegrown trees are 4 dollars a foot.
