Dave Morrow at Dave's Christmas Tree Lot in
Morrow says he gets his trees from
As far as how much you're going to pay for your tree, Morrow says he's been able to keep prices steady for the past three years. He says the recession is prohibiting tree farms from raising their prices, so even though their costs might go up, farm owners are not passing that increase on to consumers.
Of course Morrow says you'll want your shiny new Christmas tree to stay alive for the season and says that's as simple as putting the end of the trunk in water no later than an hour after you buy it. Once the end is cut off, the tree starts to seep sap and if the stump saps over, you'll have to make another cut.
