State Should Have Good Christmas Tree Crop

Experts say North Carolina has an excellent Christmas tree crop this year.

The Fraser Fir remains the dominant tree produced in the state, where the elevation and climate in western counties create perfect growing conditions for the crop.

The state ranks second in the nation for Christmas tree production, with more than five million harvested each year. Last year $85 million in trees were sold in North Carolina.

Choose and cut operations will gear up this weekend, while some tree lots are already selling Christmas trees ahead of Thanksgiving.
