I love the long winded explanation some poster had about why trees were scarce this year.
Twenty minutes out of the city on highway and by way lots there were tons of them left after the holiday.
I think he should get out a little around Christmastime.
BTW--the trees at the Grove farm market were a horrible rip off.

(From an email from Mayor Fulop):

The holiday season has come to an end & as you are putting away the decorations, I encourage you to put your Christmas tree on the curb tonight for free pick up. Throughout the entire month of January, we'll be picking up trees every Thursday morning. Place your tree outside, free of ornaments, lights & decorations, not wrapped or bagged, and it will be discarded.

Happy new year!

Steven Fulop

Tree prices are up because because of two basic reasons: a shortage of them, and increased demand. Christmas trees take 7 to 10 years to grow, and 10 years ago we were in the throes of the Great Recession. As a result, tree farmers were planting less while trying to make it through that period. In addition to that shortage, there is actually increased demand for real, live trees. Two leading theories are that some people who were buying artificial thinking it was more environmentally friendly to do so have realized their mistake, while other consumer groups (mostly millennials, according to some "experts") have been gravitating towards real trees as a nostalgic thing. Regardless of what may be the real explanation, demand is up and supply is low, hence the increase in price.

A few news stations had pieces on how artificial trees are taking over real trees for Christmas. Xmas tree farmers are feeling the pain. Maybe they are charging the dealers more to make up for some of their loss.

A few blocks from the Stop and Shop on Central Avenue is St. Nicholas Church. They usually sell Christmas trees in their parking lot.

I hope they survive 'til Christmas.


Every year we shop for our tree there, and each one has lasted us ~6 weeks (and, fared very well) until early/mid January, when we finally dispose of it.
