Christmas is less than a month away, and many around the country have been rushing to purchase their live Christmas tree this season, in fear they'll run out. But, a local farmer assures us there's no need to panic.

"They take so much care and time in growing these Christmas trees, and they know some trees will eventually go to military families one day", she said. That means there are limited choices for shoppers and of course price increase.

"iI have a grower in North Carolina that I have been working with for years", James-Babb said. 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. "They go to roughly 62 to 63 military installations around the U.S.".

So rest assured you should have no problems finding the flawless live Christmas tree for your home this year.

"It's not all about the tree as to getting the tree, bringing it home, decorating it, the smell". Teal said that these conditions had a negative effect on tree health in some areas of his farm this year. "But what they're actually allergic to is the stuff in the trees".

Because of the shortage, the National Christmas Tree Association estimates tree prices will go up by 5 to 10 percent.

"Ultimately, you have to cut where is necessary to make it fit the space, but there's a tidy way of doing it", says David.

The Boyds donate a big tree to the Hāwera Hospital every year, and have many other regulars - some had already got in contact to secure a tree. A tree's vascular system is right under the bark, and it is important to keep it as intact as possible so that the tree can absorb water freely. So check that tree stand daily. Also, many communities have a special pick up or designate a drop off site for Christmas trees. Apparently little is known about either tree except that they were put in the town square at Christmas time, were danced around and then set on fire, which may have been the beginnings of the tradition of burning a Yule log.
