Christmas tree could have of bugs in it, but not thousands

Jay Wisshack has been in the Christmas tree business for over 30 years.

Since the supply is down, growers have been forced to raise prices in several states.

But with the holiday season in full swing, it may be harder to find the ideal Christmas tree, as prices are on the rise due to a shortage of homegrown trees.

The Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree lighting special is airing tonight on NBC live from New York City's Rockefeller Center! But for many shoppers it's coming with a bit of sticker shock.

Emily Cosler, a sophomore finance and marketing double major, said she thought Johnnyswim was the ideal addition to this year's tree lighting.

"And so speaking to my grower, he said, 'John, I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to give you your entire order this year, so you might start looking around", says John Patton, owner of Patton Christmas Trees.

HTC U11 Getting Android Oreo Update Today, Starting With Unlocked Units
The HTC U11 Life came with an Android 8.0 version out of the box for all global markets besides the United States market. That said, Mo also confirmed that the Oreo update for the U11 on Sprint will be "out as quickly as possible ".

Nicer Tree, Cheaper Price Owner Jay Wisshack says, "If you like a really nice selection, probably earlier would be better". That state is the nation's second-largest Christmas tree exporter.

According to a Nielsen study commissioned by the association, Americans spent an average of $74.70 on fresh trees past year and an average of $98.70 on artificial trees.

To combat bugs and keep them from ruining tree trimming, trees should be shaken before taken into the home. Experts say prices could go down closer to the holiday with less demand.

The National Christmas Tree Association says there should be enough trees for everyone who wants one to get one.

The reason? Ten years ago during the Great Recession, growers cut back on the number of trees they planted. They suggest getting one soon instead of waiting till the last minute.
