Trees for Troops: Maine Ships Out Christmas Trees to Military Families

Here's how you can protect your tree and your family this holiday season, according to the Christmas Tree Association.

"So far, it's been pretty busy", Teal's Tree Farms owner Joe Teal said of business at his farm.

"It's just out of my control", Owner of Wonderland Tree Farms Martin James-Babb said.

The Christmas tree businesses could be dealing with the shortage through 2020.

Smith also blames Hurricane Harvey for the spike in price to transport his trees from the Willamette Valley in OR to South Texas. "We've been doing pruning work in the fields to help keep it within certain limits", says David. "I'm not happy about it". He didn't want to elaborate on the financial hit but said it would be a significant one.

It is the traditions that make Lamke Tree Farm so special, and it is the traditions that will make sure the farm survives for generations to come.

Good night, tree: Turn the lights off on the tree before you go to bed or you leave the house.

Howell said they have hundreds of trees to choose from including scotch pine, white pine and canaan fir trees.

And surprisingly, these open threats have not been considered equal to a crime in India. Cinema has the power to bring the people together, to unite people and to spread love.

The lower branches of the evergreen moved back and forth in rhythm to the rasping noise coming from the base of the tree where two pairs of jeans-clad legs stuck out.

If you have a cat or dog, you may find that a tree with sharper needles will help discourage them from thinking this a new toy for them.

Make sure part of the trunk is cut off before you take it home.

Piper Mountain Christmas Trees has been involved with this initiative for the past ten years.

"Unlike the grocery stores and chain stores, our trees are strictly grown in West Virginia", he said, "and not many other people can say that".

Many garden centres also sell artificial thin trees which are nearly like a standard, just with branches on the upper third of the tree. "They just went up so much". Thankfully my husband is more level headed and reminded me that we had 8-foot ceilings and I had a large angel that traditionally topped the tree.

To keep risks low, always do not forget to make sure lights are off when you're not there to take care of them. The heavy tree means it is loaded with water and hasn't dried out inside.

Howell Tree Farm is open from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. until December 23.
