According to the American Christmas Tree Association, some pre-cut live Christmas trees may be hard to come by this year thanks to droughts and fires, and shipping issues and they recommend picking out your tree earlier than you might have in past years.

If you think that it's too early to start putting up Christmas, may you be reminded that "Psychologists say that people who decorate their homes for Christmas earlier than others experience a really nice mood lift and are generally happier. As a matter of fact, the earlier you decorate, the happier you're likely to be."

Not sure where to buy your live Christmas tree this year? We remind you that there are several local tree farmers who work hard year in and year out to grow the perfect tree for us and they are so deserving of our business.
