"Well the eight years it takes to grow a tree is now on our doorstep, and the shortages are expected to last until 2025", Brougham said.

We caught up with volunteers from Trees for Troops in Newburgh Monday as they prepared a special shipment.

There's a Christmas tree shortage across most of the country, but not so in Central Wisconsin. Their overall growth habit is a bit more stiff than that of a Douglas-fir, but quite attractive, and they also win praise for good needle retention. Trees should be checked daily to make sure the water doesn't go below the bottom of trunk.

When grabbing a tree, make sure to look at the color: the greener, the better.

You can go get a fresh tree Thursday through Saturday from 10 in the morning until 5 in the afternoon.

The pair own Christmas Tree Hollow on Turuturu Rd, Hāwera, and have been selling Christmas trees for the past 13 years.

So rest assured you should have no problems finding the flawless live Christmas tree for your home this year. If the base of the tree does dry out and seal up, you will have to re-cut the base to allow it to absorb sufficient water. "People think you're out here destroying the forest, cutting down trees".

And with a warm Thanksgiving weekend, this year, Maggie, Madelyn and Allyson were able to take a little extra time to pick out the flawless tree.

Many garden centres also sell artificial thin trees which are nearly like a standard, just with branches on the upper third of the tree.

We spoke to several Christmas tree farms in the Mid-Ohio Valley who all said they have an abundance of trees this season.

Before making a selection, gardeners recommend keeping safety in mind. "The memories of picking a tree out with my family lasts a lifetime".

When you are ready to take the tree down, simply pull the disposal bag up over the branches.

Megan Underwood, a former Beckley native, said as someone with obsessive compulsive disorder, an artificial tree is much more up her alley.

Tree farms across the area will be cutting trees up until a few days before Christmas. The Senate tree will be set up at 9:30 a.m., and the House tree will be delivered to its chamber at 10.
